    Bigmouth VFT needs repotting

    Looks like my bigmouth VFT needs repotting. Last spring there were only 5 plants in this pot, now I would estimate over 20 are in there. For reference, it is in an 8 inch pot. Amazing how they have multiplied in such a short amount of time. Here is a pic of it, let me know what you guys think. Oh and btw, we have been in a drought here and I can't afford to buy distilled water, been using tap water for over a year now so either we have good tap water (comes from a well) or either these plants are hardier than most think.

    I'd wait until they're dormant.

    Are you sure that is the Triffid Park Big Mouth clone?
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    The person that I received it from said it was a Big Mouth Vft, but I have no clue whatsoever if it is that or what. I do know it stays low to the ground, bunches/clusters alot and has big traps.

    It's a shame the description is lacking.. "large traps on very short leaves" Which fits for just about any VFT that stays in a rosette form and has good sized traps. I was mainly curious since the 'Big Mouth' I am familiar with all are quite red with much larger traps on really compact plants. I wouldn't be surprised to find there are a dozen or more different clones all called 'big mouth'

    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Well unfortunately mine aren't able to get full sun all day long, but they get about 8 hours or so. If they got full sun all day they would probably be redder, in the fall with the lower sun angle they turn blood red because they get more sun.
