You'll need a glass jar, scissors, a plant cutter, and if necessary gravel rocks. Plant form the pot and celan it from the roots so that only the clump of plant is visible. Gently separate the plant in a larger jar, a glass bowl filled with chlorine water, with a knife. Place in an area with bright but indirect light.
