|cut any roots that don't give !@#*[/QUOTE]|
I don't recommend removing any of the roots. Even the small roots will be able to sprout babies via root cuttings. I have babies sprout from 1" roots that I accidentally broke off when repotting. But I just planted them and got some babies.
I'll take as small, or as big as you need. I'll take the "runt" i guess
Well I divided them...I have no clue if they are going to survive. All I know every time I have transplanted my Adeleas(once) they have survived. Just to let you all know I only have three pots of Adeleas and 2 have been taken and the other pot I am keeping...As I said this is to get experience on dividing sundews and shipping out plants. Knowledge is power but you must first practice .
Oh, another cheapy and light method that I use is to put it in a ziplock bag either bareroot or with a little soil. Then use bubble wrap, and cut it into strips or a cut-out square. Tape the wrap to the inside of the bag, with the plant in the middle and half an inch away from the bubble wrap strips. The plant has plenty of air/space/water, and is cushioned if it gets thrown around. You can put some cardboard in the envelope if you prefer. Now you can ship it in an envelope, and it won't get squashed! One stamp (in your case maybe two) and you're good to go!
A flytrap ate my homework!
The way I just recieved a plant in a trade from dodec was that he took some styrofoam... It was a flat piece, with a square cut out of the center. The plant (a genlisea, so it was small), in a little plastic ziplock baggie, in that cut out square, so it wasnt squashed, and it still fit into a bubble envelope...
I personally prefer my way though... The cassette cases are free for me because my house if full of them, and shipping them xpress post is also definatly my choice over regular mail so that my plants get to my friends faster, and more safely... I'm guessing its just me whos like that because I really do not see money for wut it is worth... If its spent - its gone, I wont get it back, so i forget about it... Hehe... well, its not all drawback...
