Ran, with your method of bud isolation, do you dust and replant immediately?
I ask because it sounds a lot like a bulb propagation method, but in that case, the bulb is left to cure for a bit after being cut and dusted.

There are four methods used for crown divison/multiplication. They are Bud Cuttings (Alex Summers method) Rossizing, ( the method introduced by Henery Ross) Zumberizing, (Bill Zumbar) and Bud Isolation , ( Ran Lydell's method.) All these "processes" are done in late summer/early fall. Bud Cuttings - Individual buds , from the basel area are carefully removed. Ideally each has a bit of root. These can be planted in a high humus soil. They will come up in spring looking a bit like Tc plants. Rossizing - Carefull cuts are made through the entire basel area, starting where the leaves connect. A sharp , knife is pushed through the base & out the opposit side, and then pulled down ward to the root area. On larger plants several cuts can be made. These need to be done carefully so not to damage buds on ether side. Zumberizing - Cuts about 1/4 inch deep are made between the buds. The knife is pulled ( maintaning the 1/4 inch depth) down through the base to the root area. Bud Isolation - An arch shaped cut is made over and down between each bud. This is continued in the same manner as with Zumberizing. In all these methods, a dusting of all fresh cuts with a fungiside is necessary. I believe Bud Isolation works best, as it allows the bud to be totally "isolated" but still "feed" from common root system. The resulting plants will come apart easly in spring and will be large and devlope quickly. This process also allow one to isolate sports with better cances of not having them abort.

Is there anyone who would like to offer a definition of Zumbarizing, as opposed to Rossizing?
