    Oops sorry I forgot the last part of your question. If the roots are gone it is not the end of the road. It would need to be treated like a cutting. For such a small plant this is how I do that. I have saved many a tiny plant that was rootless this way.

    1. Clean up all dead and dying plant material.
    2. Trim back the stem until you hit healthy green tissue in the stem.
    3. Dab in rooting powder. (can skip if you have none)
    4. Wrap the base in about a golfball sized wad of LFS that is very moist but not sopping wet.
    5. Place the plant in the LFS wad in the corner of a little sandwich bag.
    6. Wrap a little scotch tape around the outside of the bag to snug the moss around the plant
    7. Fold the top of the bag over so that humidity stays in but isn't 100% air tight.
    8. Place under a nice bright fluorescent light with temperatures in the mid to high 70s.
    9. Wait and hope.. it will take a month to 2 months to root if it is going to live. Peridically check the moisture level in the moss. You will need to add a few drops here and there to keep it nice and moist but not wet.

    Just a few comments on the possible pests.
    These are not the same red mites you find on other houseplants that don't like moisture and blanket the plant in webs. If it is mites though you should be able to see them on the undersides with a 10x magnifying glass. Particularly on the older leaves.

    Thrips are fast and hard to spot and don't hang out on the leaves. They are tiny too.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    Anyways...don't loose hope Daniel. Just in case, get a magnifying glass and look over it carefully after its been left undisturbed for a few hours. If u see moving this on foliage....then there might be an issue. If present..I would try neem oil based insecticide/miticide ...thats just my opinion....although when mine had an issue with mites/scale, I used orthenex and then got rid of it as I would have been poisoned if I had kept it in my apt. ANyways...yeah! I repotted mine as well. As long as the stem doesn't die and foliage is relatively the same after repotting... u can assume that the roots are growing and the plant will eventually come back. Mine took over 8 months for its recovery and now its slowly growing...although its leaves are still a little bit disfigured sometimes.

    Neem oil is a fungicide as well, making truly all purpose.

    Tony, awesome detailed instructions.
    Good growing, Jack

    Well heres the damage, its obvious it was root rot So should I treat as a cutting now? The plant still have a few short roots that are intact the rest fell out.

    Is it too late to repot it? is it beter to follow the steps for re-rooting?

    Oh, man. :/ That really sucks. I guess you can try to treat it as a cutting and hope for the best.
