    I'm going to disagree here.

    VFTs are quite tough and a complete repot will do nothing more than slow growth for a few days. You cannot harm a VFT by repotting in mid season - the only difficulty is trying not to trigger the traps.

    That's the REAL challenge.

    I am no expert here either, but I have re pot my VFT twice this year, and it is doing quite well, I just tried to not kill the roots too much. It resumed growth within a week or so on both occasions.

    Also, I have fed it a ton of pillbugs, is there some supposed problem with these? Mine had ten or so in may, and has grown 3 new offshoot rosettes since the feeding binge - - seemed like a good feed for it to me.

    I have to agree with Alexis....I dug several VFT's out of my bog this year and literally ripped them apart (they badly needed to be split). Most of them barely paused in their growth.....And I did this when they were in flower!
