Arum Lilies - Zantedeschia Aethiopica

Post by DAVIDEVANS » Mon Jan 28, 2013 4:52 pm

I've a smallish clump about 3 yeards old and doing quite well. I see that it is already sending up shoots. Is it too late to divide and if not are there any tips? The advice on the web is conflicting.

I remember reading on some Arum society that they can be divided anytime and in fact it stated that the best time to divide is when in full active growth and even when flowering.

I'd do it now, or pretty soon at least, If you leave it until they're in full growth they'll go limp for a while, although it shouldn't kill them.
