Repot the sarr or dews?

by Cross » Thu Mar 07, 2019 10:37 pm

So these things just popped up like crazy. I didn't remove them before because they were so small. But I went to get ready to repot and realized the pot is covered in sundews, itty bitty babies all over. I was thinking about just repotting the sarr instead. What do you guys think is best. I really love the sundews and there's several varieties in here, at least 3ImageImageImageImage

Looks like sundews and bladderworts!

I’d use tweezers and gently rehome the sundews. Leave the sarr as is.

I'm going to be rejoining for seasons lol. Cute little buggers. I'll transplant the big ones and wait for the others to grow next. Funny note, my 'medium ginormous' (which the whole plant is the size of a quarter) has suddenly started sprouting drosera. I wonder sometimes if they roll the plant in seeds before transplanting not that I mind, I'm getting all sorts of varieties here.

My 2 cents: Repot the Sarr. Dip the roots in distilled or rain water to remove the old media along with any hitchhiker dews. You now have an unchoked Sarr and a Sundew horde pot to let the babies grow up and possibly sell or giveaway in the future.
Just a thought.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
