I just packed up a large VFT I'm trading to someone. It has about 3 or 4 growing points on the rhizome. I was thinking of splitting the rhizome before sending it. I have never really looked at one unpotted very well before and read about splitting the rhizome to propagate the plant. When I was digging the soil from around the plant the new rhizomes were growing off the side of the main one, but the new ones did not have any roots. I did not think it would be wise to split the plant without roots.
So were the new plants growing off the main rhizomes to young yet to have there own roots? They were the same size as the main plant.
Or do you go ahead and divide it now even though they have no roots yet?
