    Where in the world are you? is it kept indoors, outdoors or under lights?

    As previously stated it doesnt look dead, just in need of some conditions to get it goimng again.

    It's growing outside. The pitcher has since withered and is completely gone.
    There's no growth whatsoever.

    Ahh
    That I am afraid sounds pretty terminal, if you do pull it up, have a look at the rhizome and give it a gentle squeeze, if it is firm and still has healthy roots on it, it may yet be resurrected, but if it is a brown mush its a gonner. Of there is somne firm and some rotten rhizome, cut away the rotton part to a healthy part (white coloured inside) put some fungicide on it and replant, although disturbing it at this time of year is not recommended.

    Best of luck - but I fear the worst.
    Cheers

    Dug it up--it was so rotten there was barely any difference between the rhizome and the substrate. Haven't smelled something that bad since my Scolopendra died.

    Sorry to hear about that . It probably was kept too wet which started the fungi.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    I didn't keep it any wetter than my other Dionea or Drosera. Oh well.
