Neomarica candida

It's easiest to ship the plantlets. Let them get to several inches tall or until they they have root buds forming. Trim them back to fit in an envelope or box for shipping but no more. They will survive for quite a while out of water but you can wrap the crown in a paper towel and cover that with a plastic bag to give them some moisture.
You can divide them like you would and iris, but the rhizome makes them bulkier to ship and you'll have to trim them back more. The plantlets ship quite nicely in a padded envelope.

 I have a couple pots of Neomarica candida that I received from a PBS distribution several years ago.  They badly need to be divided and these are prolific growers.  They are in bloom now.  Does anyone have guidance for when to divide?  Prune the tops back like you would a tall-bearded iris?  I would like to send them if possible to the exchange which is collecting now.
