Hello. I'm kinda new to these forums, but was hoping someone here might be able to provide me some advice.
I have a large pot of amaryllis that is growing wonderfully and dividing constantly. This pot has THRIVED on neglect. It sits next to my lawn, and gets sprayed by the lawn sprinklers. It basks in the Phoenix summer sun (highs of 110+), and continues growing on throughout the winter (lows dipping below freezing). These things are pretty much indestructible!
My problems comes in that over the few years I've been neglecting them, they've divided so many times the pot is FULL. I'd like to divide the pot and free up some space for them to keep doing their thing. However, they never go dormant. Will I kill them if I try to divide them while they're growing? I'm sure the pot is just one huge tangle of roots by now. Should I just leave it alone?
I don't want to sound like I'm complaining about a plant that is happy and well-adjusted, however, I do want to do what is in the best interest of the plant.
Any advice will be appreciated.
