    Ok, I won't debate it. If it works for you, great! If not, ok too. I don't think it would hurt to try. Maybe it's all in my head!

    Barry's take on repotting Sarracenia is not to do it until the roots are literally bursting out of the pots.

    And S. rubra sometimes does not like root disturbance: "Adult plants of all subspecies of S. rubra enjoy full sun outdoors. They do best in peat/sand soil mixtures. Make sure you use a large enough pot as the plants tend to not like being transplanted--they don't die, they just take a year or two to get back to their usual selves." http://www.carnivorousplants.org/see...es/S_rubra.htm

    Okay, I won't cut the roots and I'll use the bowl-of-water method to remove the old soil.

    After giving it some thought; perhaps I should postpone 'til their winter dormancy 'huh?

    Play it safe I guess......
