    Went on vacation for 8 days and forgot to tell my buddy to water my cp plants. well my one sundew-pitcher-flytrap fell apart. they had recieved tons of rain from sitting outside before i left and i keep them inside with my ac running while i was gone. came home and all the plants soils were dry as a bone [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] but those three plants all died off- now is there any way the roots are still alive or are they a complete loss?

    Thanks Jeff

    The same exact thing happened to me once, I had dug up my Biggest S. Flava, and I had to go on vacation, so I told my mom to plant it and keep it watered but she forgot, when I got home all the leaves were dead, even the new spring pitchers that were just forming, well I planted it and kept it with all my other plants, and just today two little things that looked like blades of grass started poking out! It took about two months but if you take good care of them they should start popping out soon

    Many of the commonly sold sundews may return from the roots after a couple of months time, if the roots were not totally dired off. I suggest you keep your pot moist but not wet, and see what happens. I have had plants return from the grave if they are treated with patience.
