How can you split a large Boston Fern to Make two plants out of it?
I am wanting to make two plants out of one large Boston Fern.
sorry about my typo, I meant to type cut it in half through the soil from the top and down, into two parts, two plants.
Take the whole plant out of the pot with soil still attached as much as possible, and just take a knife and move the leaves out of the way to cut thru the soil and cut it is half thru the soil. Don't worry about cutting some roots, that can not be avoided and you will have two plants. Just repot them in another container and add soil around the roots and water them in. Hope this helps.
