    ^I think I might agree, because disturbing the roots I've heard is bad for the plant when going into dormancy... if I have to transplant anything towards the end of the season i leave the clump of dirt the roots are in on it and just stick that in the new pot.

    Where did you hear that? The only thing I have read about root disturbance was in Don Schnell's book when he talks about S. flava var. rubricorpora. He mentions that SOME plants may take a few seasons to establish the full red color even in full sun if they are disturbed.

    My rubricorpora has been repotted midseason with no ill-effects. I use the fridge dormancy method and have yet to see any ill-effects that I can decisively pinpoint is due to root disturbance. I know several other growers do so as well and I have not heard of damage due to root disturbance.

    I was referring to Sarracenia so I cannot say about Dionaea, maybe some other growers with more VFT experience can help out. In my experience they've grown fine after being repotted during the growing season. I dont know about the end of the growing season though.
