I removed the moss, dirt, and dead flytraps from the death cube plants. There were 3 separate plants. I planted them all in this pot that's 5 inches tall and 5 and a halfway inches in diameter, is this enough room for all the plants?

When I was removing them from the little pot I focused all my attention on not tearing the roots and accidentally got dirt in basically all of the traps. :oops: Is there anything I should do? There is still dirt in the closed traps.

I'm sorry about creating two threads on the same board back to back >_< I didn't think this fit in with the topic of the last thread but I'm not sure if this should be it's own. You all have been very helpful, thank you!

That pot should do fine.

Don't worry about it. The traps will reopen in a day or two after they figure out that there's nothing worth eating here.
