Thread: 2 plants in 1 pot

    Unhappy

    If I buy one of the venus flytraps that have 2 plants in one pot, will I need to replant one of them, or will they both be able to live in the pot together?

    Thanks,

    D

    You can probably get by for a while in the 1 pot. They will be going dormant in a couple months and wont grow much in that time, but I would repot them in the spring.
    When you do repot them use a soil mix of 1 part sphagnum peat and 1 part washed sand.

    Good luck with your plants

    I have a vfts in one in one pot too, I would just wait until dormancy to do anything about it.

    In Addition:
    Also depends on the size of the plants since vfts have bulbs. If they are really small you may want to wait until plants get a little bit bigger.

    On the other hand, since these are tissue culture plants, they may not go dormant this year. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    As for transplanting them, you really don't need to transplant them into seperate pots. They will do fine together for a couple years. When you see roots growing out the bottom of the pot is when they need transplanted to a larger pot or to seperate pots. I find a clump of plants as impresive as one or two large plants.

    It is alright if they both grow in the same pot. I have a windowsill planter with about 10 plants in it, and they grow fine. Like BCK said, they might need to be transplanted next spring, but I would leave them together.
