Hakone grass question

Is this a "delicate" (or, as Ken would day - foofoo) plant? I want to recreate a pot planting in a pic that was posted on the board, and unfortunately hakone grass is expensive. I found a good-sized pot for $20, and I can get two divisions out of it. But, I might need 3 or 4 divisions to get a filled-in look, and I'm hesitant to hack it into thirds - just how touchy is hakone grass and will it bounce back quickly after division? I could go buy another, but dang that's $40 on one pot display (my plan is to overwinter the grass and use in subsequent years, but sometimes plans fail...) not counting the $$$ elephant ears I have to still buy.
