    Drosera spatulata, Division?

    I got this plant last year from **, I believe it was a small clump then, with maybe 5 heads.
    Now, it probably has 30 or more, it seems to be hundreds when I look at it
    Now, if it were yours would you divide it up or just pot it up into something a bit bigger?

    I don't necessarily need 30 individual pots of this..but maybe a few 1 1/2 inch pots?
    Assuming I do divide it up, anyone want some cute little weeds?

    It's actually tokaiensis, not spatulata (said nursery still hasn't changed their labels for that one). As prolific as it is, I would maybe repot a few into a larger container, and throw away the excess (nearly everyone will have it, so they're almost not worth anything to sell etc.).
    Also, per rules of the forum here, should avoid posting names of in-US nurseries.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    That's an odd rule, I am not saying anything bad about the nursery (at all), nor implying it.
    Though it's nice that you were able to use that information to give me more information about the plant. Thank you.

    I'll read the rules, that was one I didn't expect. Ok, I think the part you were referring to was 'positive advertising'. I don't believe I did that..I simply provided a source that I ordered it from.

    I promise you hcarlton would have given a proper ID even without knowing where you got it. He just named the same sundew in another post: Drosera burmanii or Sessifolia You would definitely get better looking plants if you divided them out a bit.

    He is referring to the end of the advertising rule (3a) that says "Advertising would include talking about or giving URLS to other CP sellers."
