    Hi,
    My heliamphora minor looks like it divided a ton of times... but the one time I tried to repot it it almost cracked. So...does anybody have any tips for repotting and dividing?

    I take the plant out of the pot and gently snap the rhizome to the point where each growing point has its each rhizome and a couple of roots. I leave the main plant with a few growing points and pot the other plants individually in a mixture of 3 parts lfs or better yet, new zealand lfs. 2 parts perlite. 1 part peat moss. During the period of acclimation, I make sure that the humidity is always above 70% and the temps are to their liking. When they have produced 2 pitchers, they have acclimated.

    ps: if you do divide it, pm me![img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Is it in a terrarium? If so fill the terrarium with rainwater above the height of the plant and let sit for 30 minutes. AFterthis the plant will be much more flexable

    I dont know, but in all of the books I have read, it says to keep the crown above the soil and water level.

    Yes, I've lost many Heliamphora that are watered overhead frequently like D'amato suggests, he suggests a recipe for death! I now hardly ever water my plants, they get a very very fine mist from the nearby mist nozzle overhead, the smaller moisture droplets that drift on the air are the key, not a thorough saturating constantly.
