whats the hardest plant to repot (for u) and whats the best?

by HarrisAz » Thu Sep 09, 2010 4:21 pm

for me,the hardest plant to repot is small rosette plants like D.Burmannii,Spatulata,Intermedia,ground hugging VFTs with lots of leaves and other low lying plants which is small or sometimes big ones

the easiest one for me is Sarracenia bcz they usualy stay upright all year and other upright plants

whats for u?
Thanks,

All sundews are difficult for me, they always end up looking like a plant made of peat!

For a beginner it may seem hard but after time you'll find ways to get around it!

Dionaea is nice to repot but its very hard when it has very long roots and low lying leaves.
