What should I do with this Sundew that's falling over

As you can see from the picture, this sundew has grew quite a bit from all the black leafs at the bottom.

Now, it's produced two new dressers near its feet and it's giving out a second flower stalk.

I really love the contracts between the dead and new growth but here's the problem

It's getting so tall that when I pick the pot up, the whole planet wobbles.

Lately, I've noticed that it's tilting and I'm worried that when it falls over, it's going to uproot the whole plant.

What should i do?

thanks!

You can put the little guy in a different pot and pack more soil around the base of the big plant to secure it.

Or you can trim the dead stuff and repot it slightly deeper. It's really up to you.
