    Repotting would be more beneficial than leaving it be. Any disturbance will eventually be overcome and just leaving it in poor soil might eventually kill it. Repotting will also give you the opportunity to inspect the root bulb, as suggested above.

    Yes, go ahead and repot (preferably with a 1:1 ratio of peat and perlite). Tell us if you see anything abnormal on the rhizome.

    Everybody's got their favorite soil mix and a good one for VFT's is sand & peat, with live long fibered sphagnum on top, which we can help ya out in procuring. They are real light lovers and need distilled, RO, rain, or deionized water. Transplanting it will likely have a shortterm effect of shocking it. Once repotted... just wait several days for it to recover and don't worry about existing foliage. They will likely die. Look toward new growth instead.

    I agree. Repot into peat/sand or straight peat, buy Superthrive to revitalize the plant and help with good root development and stand back to watch for results. Water is VERY important, so listen to that advice as well. Where in the world do you live? Outdoor growing is best, but since we have no idea where you are, that advice is harder to give. My VFT's grow in straight peat, and are doing quite well, even the 34 year old plants.

    I live in Connecticut, so the climate isn't very VFT-friendly. I've only used distilled water, haven't tried any other kind. I will repot it this evening and see what happens. Maybe I'll be able to get a picture posted, too.

    Take a picture of the rhizome/corm/bulb whichever you prefer to call it.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
