    i have a ton of spatulatas in a 4" pot,... i was wondering, how do i repot them into a bigger pot so i can put all of them together in 1 pot,,

    cus there leaves are like all along the sides so i cant like grab the trunk and pull it out upside down,.... and i ant to put them into one big pot so i dont have to move around all 3 small pots all the time,

    so does anyone have any tips on how i could repot them with out like damaging them and taking all the dew away

    Squeeze the sides of the pot, to loosen the soil a little and then poke a pencil or other small object through the drainage hole. This should push the rootball and medium out of the pot and be ready to pot up in a larger one. Make sure you hold onto the medium as it falls out to avoid damaging the plants. Then just plant the three pots of plants in a bigger pot. Hope this helps!

    I want to repot my spatulatas too. I'm gonna wait til December though. I was planning on just cutting the plastic pot in half but Snowy Falcon's idea seems easier, saves the pot too.

    Drosera seldom have enough roots to become "root bound" . I repot to eliminate any problems with nutrient buildup from the medium breaking down, etc. The root ball pops right out. When I transplant I use the occasion to remove old leaves from the base of the plant, and it's the perfect time to pull off some leaves for leaf cuttings and to transplant offsets.
