I have this plant and it is healthy, blooms yearly BUT is so big (and heavy) that it is potbound, and I don't want to move it to an even bigger pot. SO my question is, can it be divided? If so, how should it be done? Or should I just amputate parts of it?

I suggest you send a treemail to WillC, a houseplant expert who, I am sure, can advise you wisely and willingly. @WillC @noxelts
