    Sarracenia - carnivorous plant!

    Thanks @Spruce . I think I’m ok though, as the Drosera is one of the common sundews - probably Drosera aliciae? I think they can flower without being too detrimental to the parent plant?

    Chances are it would continue to "weep". Having had a quick look round cuttings seem to do well. The RHS say "Propagate by semi-hardwood cuttings in summer or hardwood cuttings in winter."
