A few years ago I had a "dinner plate" sized cluster of S peruviana  fused together which I dug and kept wrapped in newspaper in a box in a closet all summer, then replanted in the fall. Unfortunately, during one of the lingering spells of wet weather we sometimes have here in Central Texas, was killed off. I tried to plan for protecting the clump from too much heat, but couldn't save it from too much water. You might want to keep the mass intact and just enjoy it that way rather than break it up. -Cynthia Mueller, Central Texas
