    What you do is stop worrying so much. It's D. capensis. Whenever they need transplanting, just throw whatever extra crap you've got laying around in a pot and it's good to go.

    Heh. When I did all my repotting with perlite. I took every single clipping whether it was half brown or all brown and stuck them all in a big bin with 1/4 inch of peat/perlite on top. There is so many clippings it's crazy. I put at least 10 still green adelae leaves in there. Just about some of every plant I own.

    I'm hoping they all sprout something. I saw a pic this guy had one adelae leaf with 6 new sproutlets on it. I sure hope mine do that. I also added some star moss in there to fill in the blank spots until I can get some live LFS.

    Congratulations! Don't worry. Your plants will probably be fine. Capensis is quite hardy.

    Personally I hate perlite. I try not to use it...although I did use a hefty portion of it to start some Cephalotus leaf pulls to keep the soil airy.

    Here in New Zealand we can use pumice instead of perlite
    Drosera Arcturi-The Alpine Sundew...
