How do I transplant this overgrown potted alocasia?
I inherited this alocasia upright from the previous owner of the home I bought, and it is so in need of being taken out of this pot but I am unsure how to do so correctly. It is currently winter here, so the plant has died right back, but in the warm weather it is spectacular. I would prefer to keep it in a (bigger) pot or seperate into several pots if possible, so it can be overwintered indoors. How do I correctly transplant it - do I need to separate some of the enormous tubers, or would that harm the plant? If separating them is best, how do I do that so as not to damage the plant? I have never seen an alocasia with so many large tubers above ground so appreciate advice. Many thanks, Melbourne_Gardener
