Dear Michael,

Excellent guide to dividing the clumps, I do it sometimes in a similar way, just adding a bit of sphagnum when I do it at cottage garden, in Prague I add nothing.

I must say that I have not been always 100% successful. Especially in case of Cyp. kentuckiense. Divided plants got much smaller and weaker and more susceptible to other dangers. But overall, I am not as experienced grower as you are.

When dividing the clumps, do you take into account some other factors like the kind of weather or phase of the moon or something else? What is your experience when dividing smaller clump of 4-5 shoots? The same?

All the best,
