Can oxalis corms be divided and, if so, how?

Generally I do this in the fall, when I know where the plants are still. Could be done in spring also, but then, "where are they?"

Thanks, Darlene, these are potted houseplants. Can individual corms be divided?

Cricket,

A single corm cannot be divided. However, multiple corms growing in the same pot can be divided. This is best done toward the end of the dormant period.

Thanks, Will! The oxalis are just beginning to come out of dormancy. When recently repotting them (to a smaller pot [thumb] ) some of the corms were two or three times the size of the others but appear to be singles. Good thing I left them alone!
