Arum lily - can i split it?


Hi, I have a beautiful arum lily in the pond that's doing very well this year - 3 flowers already, and have the perfect spot for another. The existing plant looks as though it could be split (in fact it looks as though it's splitting itself). As these plants are not exactly cheap I'm tempted to split it, but don't know if this is the done thing - any advice please?

    I would split it next Spring just after it starts growing.. Use a bread saw to divide into large chunks, each with a growing point, and repot.

    image Thanks fidgetbones, that solves that one.I'll do that - if I can stop the little devil from wandering off it's ledge and trying to drown itself in the meantime! I don't know if the fish are pushing it about or it's too top heavy, but it's taken to edging its way towards deeper water this past week. Julie
