    If it is already acclimated to your outdoors, just continue to give it fullsun, and keep it in a water tray with good water (distilled, rain, or dehumidifier). Keep the water tray up and it'll be fine.

    It just reacted. When transplanting, it is best to move the plant and soil as one unit, so its roots aren't disturbed. Then it doesn't notice anything. But then one needs to be cognizant of the changes in lighting and humidity.

    I'm confused.. you moved it from a 2" pot to another 2" pot? Why?
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    I had two VFT plants growing in one pot so I moved one of them in its own seperate pot. Was that a bad idea?

    No, that's fine. Never seen one wilt after being transplanted though. You used sphagnum moss peat?

    This will open up a can of worms, but unless there is a problem with the soil media, like contamination, it wouldn't have hurt to have left the two together until they were both dormant. I bought a trio of VFT's in a pot and competition for space was never an issue. For very expereinced hobbyists, like Steve and Alexis, moving plants is no longer an issue. I'm sure they've paid their dues when they were new to the hobby and now know how to prevent problems as well as troubleshoot.
