Dividing large tropical houseplants?

i recently bout some nice large tropicals, like a dieffenbachia(dumbcane) and a croton, there are bout four separate plants in each pot , can i divide them up? it is spring so i thought bout doing it cause they are to big

Dividing large tropical houseplants?
not a good idea.

they have been growing together a long time and the roots are all tangled together.

since you just got them recently it would be better to leave them in the pots they came in for a while so you know any stress that they may have is from your new care not from having their roots ripped apart.

it will not hurt the plants to be growing together at all. both plants actually do better when a little root bound.
