Over the last couple of days I've been repotting my venus fly traps and drosera from circular pots to square in an effort to create more space in the greenhouse. Also divided a few of the venus fly traps too.
Hope you like the pictures :)

Grey - I got 100 of those square pots for £7 on Amazon :) Also ordered some larger square pots from HC carnivorous plants to repot all of the sarracenias. He sells them in packs on 100. Think the 13cm pots are £20 for 100 and 9cm are £12 for 100 :)

That's great!
My local nursery will give out free 4" pots from plants if theirs that either died or were repotted.
They tend to be flimsy, but they work fine.
Also, I keep and have kept a lot of non-CP's in these pots, and reuse them.
I save every pot that I get, as I know I will need it one day.
I do have to throw out some though.
