Divide Potted Plants

Since we live in a condo, our gardening is limited to potted plants. When I get a new plant, I always make at least 2, sometimes 3, pots out of it. I divide them and re-pot them with new soil. I always save old pots in my storage closet, so I don't have to spend money on new pots each time.


I love red begonias and I bought one a few weeks back which I was able to divide into 3 plants. All are flourishing, and you can't tell which pot had the original in it. This saves money and also keeps plants from becoming root bound so quickly.
