Default Re: Time to separate the pups for the Spring

D and T

It is best to take the pups when they stil have several weeks of good warm growing weather ahead. That allows them to get rooted and established before they go "dormant" in cooler weather, and then they have less likelihood of rotting. Pups taken in Fall and Winter have a greater mortality rate, because it is so easy to over-water them. When the weather is cool, the plant uses less water, and there is less evaporation, so overwatering is easy.
