    I'm not sure what you're waiting for us to tell you. The second article Junglekeeper linked to shows how to divide it and pot it up and shows some pot sizes. If you cut off the half that doesn't have any current growth, then it would seem that you have plenty of room for new soil in the same pot, and that would do for a while. I wouldn't do too much root cleaning - you don't want to injure any of the roots on the side you're keeping, beyond the major cut.

    I would divide up the rhizomes giving attention to minimizing damage to the roots of the ones I intend to keep. Throw away the remainder or pot them up separately and see if any of them will regenerate; you may not get new growth from the broken 'stems' but may, in time, get some from the rhizomes.
