    I already did mine last month. It's a good thing, too, because right now they're underneath a foot of snow and ice. (Next year probably won't be the greatest for my S. minor 'Okee.') I have a few pots left that I didn't have time for that I'll do in late Winter. I'm not sure I've ever noticed much difference in dividing early or late; I usually don't plan it, I just decide to do it sometime once it's really cold and unpleasant outside.
    I've never lost anything to rot before, except maybe if you count a clump of D. filiirormis tracyi. But I didn't divide those; they just got way too cold I think. Is that more of a hazard in warmer conditions?
    I'd be glad to take some seedlings off your hands too, striker. ;D

    Like I said: If you're looking for good homes for them, certainly I can help. You're welcome to look through my grow list at: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=115048 but after looking at your growlist, it seems unlikely that I have something that you might want. :P

    My collection of Sarracenias are currently residing in a co-worker's garage, as they had last year. It will be March or April before I get them back. Last year I was pleasntly surprised as to how well they took the winter, there, as well as the flower scapes they produced, and the natural division that took place.

    I want to do the whole division thing, but the soil is frozen solid out there, heh. The S. x 'Judith Hindle' had a LOT of growth points when I repotted it right before winter, but I wasn't sure it would make it if I divided it before putting it out.

    We'll have to see what survives -- I am guessing the S. Purpurpeas will live at the very least, but we'll see.

    I am not going to do so much dividing as I am repotting, which will be done probably sometime in February.

    Right now I am in a daily pattern of moving the plants (that still have healthy foliage) outdoors during the day and indoors (into the garage) during the night as nightly temperatures are dipping below freezing. It's quite a hassle, bit it's worth it.

    im still debating what to divide/when. Im thinking im gonna start tomorrow or the next day. Maybe the whole over grown collection...which will take forever! i guess i cant complain though, compared to wolf9striker.

    Mine are all in the fridge with the VFTs until mid February. Then they come out. I do check on them a few times during the winter though.
