How do I separate an Arum lily growing in a pot?


Our Advice:

The Arum Lily you want to propagate is actually Zantedeschia aethiopica Crowborough, and it is propagated by simple division in the Spring before flowering. This usually involves taking it out of the pot and chopping the clump in half or quarters, discarding any old, damaged or rotten sections and re-potting the divisions.
