    Splitting and repotting unknown hybrid

    Hi everyone I have just split a Sarracenia hopefully some of you can identify it. I belive it's a hybrid. It was very crowed with rhizomes all growing on top of each other, even in a large pot. My main question is now I have split the plant. Do I cut off all existing pitchers, even though there are quite a few nice pitches on the plant. And although they are obviously dormant now, should I stand them in water, or just give them a good soaking, so the new compost is damp. There is a new Flava in the one pot, and quite a few of the plants split of my hybrid. A few sundews which the frost got to, which are just recoving and a venus fly trap or 2. Thanks steve

    Hi just a quick hello

    I'm Steve. In my early 40s now lol and started a very basic Sarracenia garden. I originally started collecting carnivorous plants as a kid, after falling in love with my venus flytrap. It soon progressed to collecting various Sarracenia which grew on my window sill. And quite a few in mums garden. Now after digging a pond last year, and toying with the idea of a bog garden, I've decided to start another collection. Although not a bog garden yet, I've gone for a few large pots around the pond. Although currently my plants are over wintering in the porch. Hopefully this year I will get my hands on some more plants. Quite lucky where I live, as I'm only a few miles from P&J plants formally Marston Exotics, and just recently today found another seller in the Neath Valley. So not too far away. So thought I would introduce my self, offer my limited advice, and learn a lot more from the people of this forum. Thanks for having me Steve
