Q.Bird of Paradise Plant

Anonymous added on April 17, 2014 | Answered

I started a bird of paradise from a wax log brought back from Hawaii about 18 years ago. It has reached the point of outgrowing my largest pot. It is about 4 ft. tall and a solid large rootball. It also seems to have about 6 to 7 different clumps. Can these be cut apart without damaging the plant itself? There are large, roots that look like tubers throughout the rootball. I would like to divide it into 3 or 4 plants but don’t want to damage it beyond repair. Help!
