    How do divide ant fern?

    I was wondering if anyone had advise on controlling this plant. It is growing outside of its pot and bullying other plants. Should I just clip off the protruding growth? Can I root clippings?

    I usually just cut or rip off chunks of my L.sinuosa. Doesn't seem to bother the main plant and the pieces root and grow easily.

    Thanks for tips gents. I'll rip the extra off and see if it roots. Or give it away....

    I prefer to "wiggle" them off by hand rather than slice into the plant arbitrarily. I prefer divisions to have roots since it's faster, but unrooted ones are OK.
