    Hi Steve,
    The best time I found is BEFORE growth starts as the emerging pitchers most of the time stop dead in their tracks. Also with colour forms like red tube flava do not lose their colour when potted up. I do all my divisions, potting in Jan/Feb with no problems.

    Hi Steve,
    No, I don't, and I never use fungicide.

    I get out of 1200 repots per year only 2 3 cases which are quickly dealt with, so no losses.

    The advantages in not disturbing the plant in growth is the main reason

    I hope you, Victoria and Freier(did I spell that right?) are well.
