    should be possible to divide. If you gently use some forceps to check between the individual rosettes to see each plant has its own root system first though. Alternatively, you can take a few leaf pullings and lay them on some peat moss they will form new plants within a week or so

    usually the winter succulent leaves are better for pullings. Wouldn't harm your plants to take one or two from each rosette. Just make sure you get the whole leaf intact when you pull it

    They are not dormant, just a different leaf growth form. Divide them if you want. Trim off the dead leaves while you are at it and take leaf pullings.

    As people have said, those should be ready to divide. You can easily take 7-10 pullings from each plant if you wanted, wont harm them in the slightest. When dividing you will probably lose some anyways. I always take the outside ones and works good for me.

    That mix should work good. I prefer to include no peat and mix in sand and/or APS with the perlite instead but have used peat in the past with good results. I use the same mix for pullings as I do for adult plants.
