    Are you saying that if the LFS did not did not become too tight one could leave them in the media without having to repot every 2-4years. As I have a nice set up I wanted to use as for VFT's I don't think that there they are packed so tight that plant could not push through. If the LFS get too tight why not just pull out some in between that the then create space...

    I second this and would like to add that, in my experience, they seem to divide more when there is too much water. This of course is the scenario that an overly dense, too tightly packed media would cause.

    Add perlite or sand to your moss or simple do not pack it as tightly.

    Steve D. over at another site--and presumably an associate of KNepenthe--recommended to me once to let flytraps stay slightly more dry that Sarrs and most sundews. Since I began following his advice my flytraps have grown larger and more robust in a shorter time. In fact, I never allow water to sit in their trays.

    Hope this helps!

    Just an update...

    The separated plantlets are growing much bigger on their own although a couple are still doing the multiplying/clumping act. The weather is much cooler but I have the lights on for the same period as before...not sure if that plays a part too.

    Some clumps to be separated and planted out yesterday.


    Shark's teeth/Bristle Tooth (can't really tell)


    Cross teeth (distinct cup-like traps and skinny petioles)


    The whole container of these crazy growers!
