I purchased a Red Piranha Flytrap and when it arrived, it had half a dozen little capensis in the pot. It's been a month now and the sundews have gotten a lot bigger. I'd like to separate all of these plants, but I'm wondering how delicate the roots are. Anyone have any experience like this?
Best to take out the whole soil ball, and carefully remove the soil from the roots in order to keep them intact. That said, capensis is just about indestructible, so even if you break most of the roots they will re-root eventually and grow again. The only concern there is leaving a piece of root in the flytrap pot as it will sprout a new plant.
