Default Transplant Lotus?

Is it safe to just put the lotus I have into a larger pot since they seem to
be growing out of the pot they're in? Or just cut off the "hairy knuckles"
nedra calls 'em, and plant them into a pot of their own and wait until fall
to transplant/divide the lotus all at once?

Thanks

Anyone have any ideas on this? I have the same problem with one of my
Lotus.

Okay, here goes.
Don't plan on re-potting the lotus until next spring. As for
the hairy knuckles I *think* they will be okay if you cut
them off and plant them ... I wouldn't take bets on this!
I would leave them as is .... just make sure they are covered
by water .... until it is time to divide/repot.

I know some of the guys on here told me its okay to
cut them off and repot but I don't remember the names.
