Help

I am new to this

We have a Venus Fly Trap and are not sure if we should re-pot it. It is presently in a small pot and a long shoot has develope. Is it safe to re-pot them. Much a what we have read says they should be in a terrarium

Any support greatly appreciated

If you're gonna repot it, make sure you don't disturbe the roots. It actually doesn't need to be repotted for quite some time. Mine's over 10" across, and is still in its original 3" pot ^.^ So ya, if ur gonna repot it, make sure you don't disturbe the roots too much, use high quality fiber sphagnum pete moss, and keep it moist. Don't let it sit in a pool of water though, cuz the roots will rot >.<

Good luck!!

IF u are gomnno repot it you can put the roots (with leaves on them) in a ziplock bag and refridgirate them for the time being.

AloeGrower, you should only do that if the leaves are dying out. Venus' Flytrap have a dormancy period during the winter and need to be kept in a low light area which is around 40 F until you start to see growth on it. But ya, don't refrigerate it unless it looks like its dying back.
