attempted to divide stag horn fern, anyone done this?
I have had a stag horn fern which is about 6 years old growing in soil which is how I bought it. Just got too big for its location and read where I could divide it with a sharp knife or saw. I now have one with the original roots, but the rest of it came apart with no roots showing, only the leaves and the fronds. I now have it in a pot of soil with a weight on the fronds to keep it from tipping over.Will this eventually root into the soil? I know they can be grown on a slab of wood, but would like to keep it in a pot since I have had success with keeping it this way.
