    That is why you want to take a few leaf pullings, for insurance. If the plant fails to send up a new growth point it'll probably die away. But with the leaf pullings you'll be able to start over and not lose the plant completely.

    I think they will be fine if kept safe until they can heal. The vft depends on how much of the rhizome was damaged, if any, but I don't think picking off the newest leaf prevents any further growth. Each trap doesn't come from the last one, so it isn't a growth tip like with a nepenthes vine. I cut my wacky traps down to just a rhizome when it started dying, rinsed it, hit it with peroxide, and repotted in new sterile soil, and in a couple months it made well over a dozen, probably 2 dozen, healthy traps. The sundew looks fine. It will likely put up several more flower stalks anyway.

    Also, if you can't protect them outside, I'd move them to a sunny windowsill if you don't have access to grow lights, but leaving them out there, if it was an animal, is just asking for it to happen again.
