    Hi people whats up!!!!

    Well I have a little problem with my spoonleaf sundew. I got it a couple of days ago. And well this is my problem, It looks like there is three plants in this one little 3' pot. Two of the plants are on top of the one in the middle, and to make it even more dreadful two of the plants are sprouting flower stems. I think there flower stems. But anyways should I repot them in there own pot or should I wait till the flower stem matures. I wan't to repot them in a mix of peat and sand. And if I do repot them, what is the best way to do it with little shock or damage to the stem....

    Well, D.spatulata seems to look nice in a clump, but occasionally a plant or two will be "lifted" off the soil by ther plants around it, thus it dies. I would let thme stay until they get really cramped looking, then repot, but sometimes I like to repot all into a large pot.

    I think the 3' pot for small plants is a new thing. This is the second one this week. Lot's of room for the plants to grow tho'. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I will take credit for the first one, Thanks BCK! It is that inconvenient Shift Key [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] that decides if it is a 3 feet pot or a 3 inch pot. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
