    Dividing time!

    Has anyone else started dividing their sarracenia yet? I have started this weekend, I have to start early or I wont get them all divided and repoted. It looks like I am going to have a huge amount of divisions to get rid of in the spring, I can't wait just a few more months!

    I'm going to wait until early spring before I divide any of my Sarrs. Right now they are all tucked away and sleeping.

    With my rainy rain winters, it's for the best if I wait. A lot of them will be sitting in water, so breaking rhizomes is probably the last thing I want to do. Despite my best efforts, I always lose a little bit to root rot every winter.

    Luckily I don't have that problem with root rot so I am able to get a head start on the process.

    Craig - are your sarrs greenhouse grown, and if so, have you always divided at this time of year?

    Yes they are greenhouse grown. In years past I have started in late Jan-early Feb but have found that I either don't get all of them divided, transplanted and repotted so I figured that if I started a little bit earlier I would have a better chance of getting them all done w/o having to spend multiple hours at one time.

    Not yet. The folliage on my sarras is still browning so I'm leaving mine on them still. Last year I cut a little too quickly and I think it might have robbed some vigor from this year's pitcher crop.

    This season I'm waiting until the end of January next year (or the leaves turn brown) before I remove them.

    Also, if you're interested in finding homes for some of your divisions, let me know. Could always use a rosea or two.

    I have many 2 year old S. rosea seedlings that I will need to get rid of when it gets warmer.
