  2. Shake off excess soil: Gently shake off the excess soil to expose the root system.
  3. Separate the clumps: Using your hands or a sharp knife, divide the clump into smaller sections. Each section should have a good portion of roots and at least one fan of leaves.
  4. Replant the divisions: Dig holes in suitable locations with well-drained soil. Plant the divisions at the same depth they were in the original clump. Water them thoroughly to settle the soil around the roots.
  5. Aftercare: Keep the newly planted Dietes well-watered until they are established. Mulch around the base to retain moisture and suppress weeds.
