    Awesome, I definitely want to separate some out. How elaborate is the root system, any recommendations on breaking out?

    You can just take sections of the soil with stolons and plant them elsewhere. It's not really a fragile plant, so I wouldn't worry too much about how to separate it.

    It is not picky at all about media so should grow fine in anything. It spreads really easily too, since its flowers self-pollinate. You should have no problem growing it.

    You might want to reconsider. Once established, it's almost impossible to remove from a collection. There are also some people who would refuse to trade with someone who's collection is infested. There are many species of wonderful-to-grow utrics, this & U. subulata are not on that list....
    All the best,
