Okay. I have a large peace lily that is begining to turn yellow at the tips, and the soil is so sparce in the pot that I belive it's time to divide it. I have read about people dividing them before, but I want to make sure I know what I'm doing before hand.

I know I need to pay attention to keeping the tools I use to cut the plant up sterile.

I know it will droop for a while.

What else should I know? My father-in-law gave us this plant--it used to be his, so I don't want to kill it.

Unless you feel it's just too big, I would not divide it. Instead I would simply repot it into a slightly larger pot with fresh potting soil. Peace lilies don't like to be overwatered, so let it dry out some inbetween waterings.
