Q.Splitting A Large Copper Plant

Zone Celebration area of Kissimmee, FLA [zip 34747] | Anonymous added on September 8, 2021 | Answered

We have a magnificent Copper Plant growing and taking over its spot. Can we easily and successfully split it into 3? We love it but it is too large where it is and we have more space on either side for two cuttings IF that’ll work. Thanks.
