    Um... Hi! But if it is still in the pot I would imagine that it is ok. Pics are always a help but unless something snapped or the roots were greatly disturbed I would imagine that it is ok. I'll let the experts give the final say though. Just my 2 cents.

    Good luck!

    Hmm...It might be ok. Although it's young and new dropping it might not do much harm. If it's healthy, it'll get over it. Just incase, add a little of superthrive for encouraging new growth, that usually helps transplanting plants get over shock. I dropped my Sarracenia rubra once and nothing happened. Only time can tell you.

    PS: I'm not sure how to use superthrive though (so maybe you might not want to use it if you have it), do you use the actual liquid or do you make a solution? Anyways, good luck.

    PSS: Naughty kitty!

    I wouldn't worry too much about it unless there is damage visible. I find Cephs to be a lot hardier than most people give them credit for. Posting pictures however would definitely help. Good luck.

    don't worry...if the plant was well established and growing fine before this accident...it will pick up in no time.

    If you broke some roots, the plant might just react by closing the lids on its pitchers to conserve water. At least you can blame your cat, I was the one to knock my pot of Ceph over.
