    Unhappy Tragedy!

    say good bye to my nephentes and VFT

    my fish tank fell on my PC dragging along whit it my VFT, Nephente's and butterwort
    the butterwort's pot is smashed and it's leaves are covered completely in dirt
    The VFT ha been decapitated 3 time's
    and my nephentes has had 3 or o of it's new pitcher's cut off
    also my computer is still soaked(writing this on laptop)

    so question is: is there any hope for my plant's to survive?

    Your plants will probably be fine. The vft will be okay as long as the rhizome wasn't damaged too badly( from your description it wasn't), the nep won't mind losing a few pitchers, and the butterwort is probably fine too and if not you can do some emergency leaf pullings. The most important thing to do is get them replanted.

    I don't know about the VFT, but the butterwort might be able to survive if it's leaves are just covered in dirt. You should get it into a new pot as soon as possible. Also, my Nepenthes fell over and it's leaf got a cut halfway through on the side. That cut is surrounded by black and the tendril is black but the plant seems fine. Just get everything comfortable and hope for the best.
    The following statement is true.

    It could activate another growth point.

    just thinkin' that.

    When you cut the vine to root a cutting, the plant still figures out how to grow from a different point. It'll probably be fine.
