    Newbie ping dividing question

    Sorry for the dunce newbie type question.
    I have a nice ping that needs repotting.
    Rescued from a Home Depot death cube 3 or 4 years ago and now doing very nicely.
    Not sure exactly what variety it is, the tag didn't say.
    It is still in it's winter rosette, calmly sitting in my north window here at work.
    The problem is it looks like it is really three plants, there are 3 distinct
    rosettes packed closely together. All three bloom every year.
    When I pull this out of the pot will I have to cut these apart, or should they
    pull apart fairly easily?
    I hate to disturb it since it seems to do quite well the way it is, but I "feel
    the need" to seperate and repot it.
    All opinions appreciated.
    Les

    they will pull apart easily, but the leaves a really fragile so you may take some accidental leaf pullings- don't worry, put the leaves on soil and they'll each sprout like 10 other plants.

    You don't need to divide unless you WANT to (maybe for trades or gifts) it will be fine, and keep dividing on it own.
    you could also repot without separating...
