Hi, I recieved this plant today. It is incredibly root bound and has a lot of pups. Do you have any advice for me on how to repot and propogate it? The roots and soil are a solid mass. There is no way I can manipulate them. Thank you :)

GEE ? That sure looks like Miners Lettuce, which is an annual, that goes to seed, and dies when weather warms up. Seed head comes up out of center of leafs. They are just starting to appear on yours.
Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.

Opps ! Didn't answer your question.
Soak rootball in pail of water, 20 - 30 minutes. Gently work roots apart to seperate. Keep roots under water while you plant each one into just moistened soil.
