Dividing Darlingtonia

Recommended Posts

 

Hi, I have a Darlingtonia plant that last year produced several smaller122.jpg.9a6ac064434e8ed3f04c41021b06d5f2.jpg plants. At the moment they're all still in the same pot with the mother plant. When should I divide them? Now, end of summer, next year? Not done this before so don't want to mess up and kill them... Thanks for all your replies.

Hi, thanks for reply.

As far as I know it's a bog standard Darlingtonia.

Having said that, the seller does have Siuslaw Darlingtonias for sale so can't rule it out but the plant came with no labels... it does look a lot like one though. All I can say is that this time last year it was mostly green, the red colour developed later on (all the pitchers in the photo survived winter, this year's growth is still very small).

It's still quite a nice but small plant. I'd leave it alone for a few years to pick up size before you split.  They throw up quite a few growing points from running stems and it'll probable fill your pot.
