    Yes, you should be able to without any problem if you divide them carefully. At the broken spot, you can apply some rooting hormone and repot in different pots. Good luck.

    Soaking the pot under water for a day and then removing it should remove the ants. The few hours that your nep roots are under water won't kill your plant. Good luck.

    Allow them to keep growing until they are an inch or two across before trying to transplant them. This will allow them to get some decent roots. Enjoy.
