transplanting split leaf philodendron

My split leaf philodendron is so huge that it is taking over my patio. How can I transplant it? My plant is in an area about 10'x20' and it is growing over the patio and has roots coming out all over consuming anything in its path.

Yes, you can successfully transplant your philodendron. You will need to be careful to get both the shallow aerial roots and much of the longer tap roots. The plant will need to be cut down, this will allow the roots to start growing in it's new home and not have to support the entire plant.
