Butterwort repot

Hey all, I have this butterwort that is growing out of its pot and could use a repot. I figured some of you must have them and was looking for some advice on what kind of media to pot it into?

Is it that your butterwort has put out new rosettes (baby butterworts)? If so, just gently put your fingers under each rosette that you want to move and lift it out (I say gently as the leaves can easily fall off). Prepare the new pots first by using a mixture of peat, perlite and sand (Make certain none of it has fertilizer added) and top this with NZ sphagnum moss. Make a slight indentation in the moss. After removing the rosette, gently set it on top of the moss, in the indentation.
Bolero and digriz like this.
I decorate in green!
