    Hey Gemini girl, what kind of conditions do you have for you VFT in? And there is always a chance of it growing back from the roots.

    FYI I would refrain from adverts for other cp sellers on this forum. Our fearless leader has a shop of his own flytrapshop.com , and besides there is a whole lot more info here on any cp topic you might need.

    If it's not completely dead, look closely at the growing point - there's a chance it will recover as long as it has good growing conditions - good water, plenty of light and air circulation. It's probably in deep shock from prior poor growing conditions, transport and big changes of growing conditions.

    I'd back off on the watering a touch, let the tray almost dry out then fill maybe .25 of an inch. Tricky right now as the RH has been so low the past few days <25%. Just keep the media damp/moist - don't let it dry out.

    As for obtaining new, healthy plants - as pointed out Andrew sells them online. Carnivorous Plant Societies are a great place to get plants that are grown properly and with TLC. The next LACPS meeting is June 16th. And you can find healthy plants at the garden centers provided you find recent arrivals and look at them carefully.
