Hello I am thinking that for the healthy Sarracenia I may be able to pot one of the divided plants back into the same pot it came out of again without having to wash or sterilize the pot. This is because the plants were growing all right in the pot that it came out of and there was no crown rot. Could this be all right? I was just thinking this because it takes many hours of work to wash pots and then sterilize them. What it costs me in wages is more than the pots are worth new. I can see the point of washing and sterilizing pots if the Sarracenia died or maybe better still not using tho

These were placed in a solution of wettable Sulphur and soaked there for a few minutes. Then they were potted up. Do you suggest this method or could I get away without having to wash the roots or soaking in Sulphur? If I did not soak in Sulphur or alternatively Hydrogen Peroxide, would it mean
