  2. Use your hand to gently split the soil in half, being careful not to break too many roots and not to ruin any stems.
  3. Identify the strongest stems, untangle them, and gently split the soil to isolate each one.
  4. Fill your pots with soil, make a small depression in the soil and place the stem in the dirt, being careful to firmly bury the roots.
  5. To encourage the plant to build new roots, cut the top of the stems, only leaving behind 2-3 base leaves.
  6. Place the pots in a warm, sunny place preferably free from drafts and temperature fluctuations.
  7. Within a month of replanting, the new pots can go outside during the day and place them inside at night to get them acclimatized to the weather.
  8. After a week or two of this transition, the plants can be planted outside for good.
