You have to dig it very carefully as to not damage the roots. I always used a sturdy, pointed stick. You have to start digging several inches away from the stem all around. Loosen the dirt all around the roots. Don't try to just pull it out of the ground or you'll break off the smaller roots that branch off the larger one. If a plant has the pod of red berries, open the berries and plant individual seeds in the area where you found the plant. Place them about an inch into some loose soil and cover them.
Only dig plants that have at least three prongs. Leave the smaller plants to mature. Last but not least, be on the lookout for rattlers!
