Hello! Relatively new keeper here. Most cultivars I have started off as 1-inchers, and has since given quite a few divisions. I guess I wanna know how one could encourage a more robust growth in overall size as opposed to these VFTs constantly spewing out multiple divisions. Case in point, this maroon monster that clumped up to this bouquet of traps, which subsequently ended up as 10 individual plants. On the other hand, what causes these guys to divide and clump up like crazy?

That looks like my two Maroon Monsters. I'm interested to hear from others who are growing this cultivar.
