    before i repotted it, it looked like the photo on the 1st page, now when i pulled the plant out it got squished a bit, and cleaning off the soil, including from the root, one root came off, and it got squished repotting it, i didnt press down to hard, and some soil did get on the top of the plant.

    I dunno what ya think? i did contact the seller and tell him about the plant and the issues with the pot it came in, it was bought in may..so i dunno what luck i have from getting a return.

    Might be root rot if you actually damaged the plant or the plants roots. Is the base of the plant dark or squishy?

    If it IS root rot, at this point there wouldnt be anything you could do. So it isnt worth pulling it out. I guess only time will tell :/ Just dont give up on it, often times plants will come back from the grave even if it looks completely dead.

    I doubt it is root rot, unless there's fertilizer or some other nasties in the soil. Drosera generally don't rot from the bottom up in short periods of time like Nepenthes or Pinguicula sometimes do. Even if they start rotting, they generally recover much more readily than the aforementioned genera do.

    In my experience, plants that "melt" like that may have suffered some sort of severe physical damage that affected the entire crown (being frozen, bruised severely, dehydrated to the point of withering, etc.).
