    Hold onto the pot for a few months. Even something that looks completely dead can surprise you given enough time.

    You can also try taking one or two healthy roots (if you can find them) and laying them on some wet live sphagnum in brightly lit, cool, humid conditions.
    I haven't grown D. rubrifolia, but in my experience roots resprout a bit faster this way since they have exposure to light, and they don't rot as often since they have better oxygenation.
