    THANKS YALL! Here is the update: several of the rhizome divisions are beginning to show new tiny pitchers already. It has been only a month. I did use a root stimulator. (superthrive type solution) They were potted up in a mix of pearlite, sand, peat moss and, shredded sphagnum moss. The rhizomes were stripped of all old pitchers where they were connected exposing the dormant buds. The saucer method was used and they were placed in the full sun. As G said, we read the books, they don't. I was also told by a expert grower that if I wanted large plants to put the rhizomes vertical in the medium and if I wanted more plants to lay it flat. All the energy will go into the upper most dormant bud and thereby producing one large plant instead of many smaller ones. I will let them get larger and more photographable and then share pics.

    I've never used fungicides either. I just split them, pot them and that's it.

    I always transplant when the plant is at it's growing peak, no matter which genera or species. This works well for me. I think with a little care transplant time isn't really a great issue.
