    Talking

    As many of you have seen, I have an n. coccinea, my very first carnivorous plant since last year. Its gotten ALOT bigger and now its practicly hitting the roof of my shed. What shoul i do? I tried leaving it alone to see what happens but shes getting burned! Weird leaves are sprouting because of this and now that summer is here i bet its gonna burn even more! What should I do?

    Isnt there another way? Im usually bad with cuttings [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] And if Id cut it down, that would be enough cuttings for an entire state! lol Nah Im just kidding [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] But i could fairly divide many. And If I trim it, will it die? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_o_32.gif[/img]

    I would recommend that if you cut it back you don't leave the bottom section without any leaves. If it has basal shoots started you could cut it back further though.

    Only other things I can think of are letting it vine droop sideways.. or get a taller shed.
