Drosera daughter plant division


Recommended Posts

Ok so I found an adorable little new Drosera Aliciae plant growing right underneath one of my main plants. I want to remove it and put it in its own little pot. Any ideas how I get to do this without damaging either plants or the root system?

Thanks in advance

Pull out the plants from the pot. Soak the potting mix in bowl with water until it falls down and u see the roots. Then pot them in separate pots. If u do this correctly even there will be no soil stick on them...

It is often happend on drosera that a plantlet growes from the exact center of one of old leaves that are in touch of medium.In this case,"daughter plant" is easy to seperate by merely cutting off the leaf it growes on,then transplant.

Hey, Thanks for the replies.

I carefully lifted some leaves with tweezers, then the plantlet to see if it was on another leaf. This wasn't the case, instead, I ended up accidentally prying the plantlet out of the soil, roots and all, so I quickly prepared a tiny pot with the same soil mix and transplanted it, watered it and put it with the others. Now to hope for recovery...
