    D. binata "Dichotoma" is a spreader with a deep root system, so a pot that is both wide and tall is a good option....something like those geranium pots would work well. The peat/sand mix you mentioned will work great.

    Your D. capensis would probably benefit from coming inside. That's cool that you are growing them outside, though. I'm a little jealous.

    Got 'er done!
    I ended up digging no less and a little more than 40 D. capensis from the mess. I now have them all repotted and in my shop windowsill facing south.
    I also repotted the D. binata "Dichotoma" in a 12" round x 16" deep pot.
    I took pics of the bunch...but alas, I am not allowed to post attachments at this time.

    You might consider joining a free image hosting site, I believe it also helps with keeping the forums bandwidth usage down!

    I am very pooter illiterate. I can figure a few things out on my own, but have never used one of those sites. Is it very hard to get set up with them to post pics?

    Wow that really was a mess!

    Looks like you got them out in time though. The rhizome looks healthy on the Sarracenia, and the dews all look healthy.

    Hope to see them in their prime before long.
