    Hello All,
    I have 6 out of 8 species of sundews that are growing really well.
    I was wondering if it is time to transplant them? They are in small Gladware containers and I want them to grow in some 4' pots I have.My burmannii seedlings are in the lead and some I can see dew on the traps already.Most of them have 2-3 leaves now,is it time?
    I like then alot and this being the first time I grew CP's from seeds I don't want to screw up.
    Thanks in advance,
    Mark W.

    Depending on your level of confidence in your own cultivation abilities, you can transplant them at any time. I like to transplant mine with a dissecting needle and magnifying lens when they have just sprouted. The earlier it is done the easier it is to avoid any root damage.

    BTW, at any time when you are logged in to your username, you can click on the "edit" button on the top of any of your earlier posts and make any necessary changes.

    I have found thatthe best way to transplant seedlings is to use a toothpick and scoop the entire seedling with roots still in soil and place the mound into a depression in new pot.
