Flytraps benefit from a repot every year or two. Whenever you repot and rinse the media away from the rhizome, if it's ready to divide, it will be obvious (there will be two separate bulbs) and might even just fall apart. If the bulbs aren't completely separate, but you can see where it's starting to grow apart, you can also gently pry the bulbs apart.
