What species of Utricularia do you want to divide? Normally I just need to just cut a 'plug' out of the pot then re-fill the hole with medium. If you intend repotting then just pull off pieces. Most Utricularia will readily root from a small plug.

Yes, when it's in your collection it tends to spread. I could have sworn that I got rid of every last piece from some of my Cephalotus when I did a major report, but it has appeared again.
