    Question Division?

    My Drosera spatulata that I have owned for now a month clearly has more than one plant in the pot. However, it might not have had enough time to recover from the nursery. I know the proper soil mix to use for carnivorous plants, so should I separate the plants, and if so, at what time?

    usually not a problem-- you could leave as is. but if you must, plants should be at least nickle sized for minimum losses.

    If I were you I'd just leave them be until they get settled into their new home. Dividing them isnt necessary as their health isnt adversely affected by overcrowding. Imo, they actually look a little better if they're crowded. See mine, doing fine growing side by side.

    That is the densest clump of Drosera I have ever witnessed.
