    I've heard that p. primulaflora can be quite fussy when being transplanted. I have one in a bog that I need to replant and I'm trying to figure out the best method. It currently has a number of baby plants around it. I'd like as many as possible to survive. Any hints?

    whats wrong with where it's at?

    if you have to, just scoop up a bunch of soil and try not to bother the roots too much.

    Er...well...it was the first bog I ever planted and not knowing an better, I used an aluminum wash tub. Now the tub is oxidizing and I'm afraid the plants are doomed if I don't get them out before too long.

    In fact, if you look at the right, top corner of the picture you can see some of the oxidation.

    As Clint said, get as much of the surrounding soil as possible and needed so as not to disturb the roots. Move as one unit.

    Thanks all! I hope I don't kill it. When I get ready to transplant the bog (probably this fall), I'll let everyone know how it goes.
