Drosera question from beginner
Posted 31 July 2012 - 19:41 PM
Can you split the plant and roots in half and repot each bit ?
How far can one plant normally spread ?

You can pull 1-2 inch bits off the roots and bury them and they will in time sprout new plants.
So yes you can divide it as much as you want even seperating each crown with as much of it's roots as you can will recolonise seperately.
I'm not sure how far they will spread but I would imagine they would form a large colony given room, I did have one in a large hanging basket with a 3 foot spread and just placed one in a large outdoor bog so we will see.
Hope this helps.
