    I just got a large Crypt lucens from my LFS. It has about 30 leaves on it looks like it may have been more than one plant but at this point it's hard to tell. Can Crypt lucens, lutea, wendtii etc. be cut up and divided?
    Thanks Ryan

    Hi Ryan,

    Yes, just gently uproot the entire cluster. Be careful as the root ball could be wide and deep based on the size...........

    Then just gently (again) use your fingers to separate the root bundle. You will see where new plantlets are.....

    You shouldn't have to pull that hard. Then trim the roots before replanting.

    This should work for many crypts.
