Brugmansia root division??

Posted by Marie439 none (My Page) on

I've had a Brugmansia Grand Marnier for four seasons in a heavy 18" ceramic pot that I overwinter in my cellar annually. The first year, the flowers were peachy in color. The next two years, the flowers were white. This summer, half the plant was white and half was peachy! I'd like to divide the plant and repot the two colors separately in lighter weight pots to make moving/storage easier. I've checked online but haven't found any info on whether or not root division is advisable. Advice??

It looks like that pot is pretty crowded. LOL

You're going to have to take a look at what's going on down under. If you can get a piece(s) of the stem with roots you should be able to separate them successfully.

Another option, would be to take cuttings. I would give you more plants, too.

RE: Brugmansia root division??

I trim the roots on mine when I repot them, but not in the Fall. This needs to be done in the Spring when they have a season to rejuvenate. I agree that this one is in much too small a container. I would just cut it back, root the cuttings and repot next Spring
