    Speaking of repotting byblis liniflora...I have 5 seedlings. Four are growing in a straight line (where they germinated) only about 1/3 of an inch apart. Right now they are maybe a little over 1/4" tall...still very tiny. I hate to see them growing so close together because if they survive and grow...they will be all on top of each other. The fifth seedling is off a bit kinda near the edge of the pot. So...is it possible to move the seedlings apart without risking killing them or should I just leave the alone and let them grow into each other? I am so thrilled with these little plants I don't want to lose them. Even as small as they are they look like little sparkly trees. :-)

    I'd appreciate some guidance or tips from anyone having experience with sprouting/growing byblis.

    Thanks!
    P.S. ITS SNOWING HERE!!!! YAY!!!!! I just LOVE it! We have about 8" so far and still snowing...and its soooo beautiful! (And extra added bonus...they closed our office so I get to be home to enjoy it)!

    I forgot to mention also don't repot D.Regia since it's roots are sensitive and you CAN repot but if you REALLY NEED TO do it EXTREMLY CARFULLY!!!!

    Great Responses, Thanks so much everyone. My collection is two VFT's, two Sarrs, two D. Adela --gee, I think I've got Noah's Ark here :-). I also have two pygmae but I was not planning on moving these.

    I've stayed pretty basic with my collection so far. If they all get through this winter and into spring I'll expand my horizans then. Thanks again.

    Linda
