Crisis during gemmae collection!

I was collecting gemmae this morning and almost had a disaster. I was holding my d. nitidula x puchella upside down over a white sheet of paper while teasing out the gemmae. Everything was going fine until the drosera and half the soil suddenly fell out of the pot. Looking back on the experience I don't know why I was so surprised it happened. I took the opportunity to transplant the mother plants into a larger, permanent pot and I also scattered the gemmae so next spring I should have a nice clump of pygmies. If you click on the picture above you should be able to see the gemmae very clearly.
