    i would say in most situations no, Oct. and Nov. are not optimum, but are exceptable. sarracenia is a resiliant genus, you can divide them when you please. i think it is just better/safer/easier/etc...to do it later.

    I think you're right, Ron. I pot in live sphagnum though, so I'm not too worried about rot. I probably will try in a month or two... I know several pots have individuals that are already separated that I can remove without really disturbing, and this summer has been pretty mild so I'm not worried too much about exhausting them. Thinking back, I've done divisions in the fall before and everything came out fine. Thanks everybody.

    I know that this thread hasn't been active in a while, but I wonder if I can go ahead and divide right now.

    Yes you can.

    What are you dividing though? Some redder plants tends to take a 12-18 months to regain their redness if the roots are disturbed outside dormancy.

    Just leucophylla. Plus, I'm repotting all my other sarrs into bigger pots.

    I'm moving into bigger pots this season too. (I've got five gallon nursery pots for all my adult Sarrs - I can't wait to see how big they'll get with room to stretch.) I'm not going to have any table space for my tropical plants by the time I'm ready to move them out next spring... Come to think of it, I'll hardly have any space for them to come back inside for winter!
    Thanks for the tip on reds, Alexis - those include several of my favorites in my collection. I'll make sure to leave them until last.
