    Repotting and stuff

    would it draw my sarracenia and vft back if i repotted them all to a bigger pot right now?
    my sarracenia(oreophila and scarlet belle) is starting to stop growing but my oreophila just made like 3 growth from its rhizome. my vft is starting to make those tall high stalk going up in the air.

    i'm planning on dividing some of my VFT too.... its getting..... clumpy..
    and for sarracenia i'm planning on just snapping the little growth off from the rhizome which should already have roots since it already made like 4 miniature pitcher less than 1 inch in size.

    It will probably put them into shock that they may not recover from for some time. If they are growing fine, why would you want to repot them now anyway? Just wait until next spring.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    Sarracenia and VFTs in general can be repotted any time. Recovery time is more or less a function of how roughly you handle the plants. Zero recovery time to zero recovery time. Took a lickin' and keeps on tickin' or too much of a lickin' and they stopped tickin'

    Not a Number -

    You LICK your Sarracenia when dividing them?!? I've never heard of this technique! How much do you lick them? And is it a sloppy, wet licking, or just a light 'flick-of-the-tongue' kind of licking.

    I might just try this...assuming you say it works, of course...

    Repotting can be in general done anytime. Dividing Sarracenia (cutting/splitting rhizomes) is usually best done late winter or early spring just before growth starts.

    VFTs tend to split on their own and I usually wait for that. You can split them if they are mostly divided but it could set the growth back a bit as the wound heals.

    Mike, take a swig of SuperThrive, swish it around and lick the roots and rhizome. Works miracles. (If you believe that I have some beachfront property in AZ to sell you).
