    Exclamation Death cube VFT

    I went out and got one of those cube things from Lowes. When I got home, I got it out of that cube and repotted it... But when I took it out, the plant FELL APART!! The leaves all separated. But there was one leaf that had a single root on it, and it was kinda long. Will it survive? Right now it's in a setup to have a little less humidity than the cube. Its in a peat perlite soil mixture.

    Umm I can't say whether or not it will survive without a picture... but my guess is yes as VFT's are very hardy within reasonable conditions.
    I also do not understand how it fell apart... It might of been more than one small plant.

    No, there was three puny leaves, one was brown with mold or something on it, another was greenish with a yellow/brown trap (the one with the root), and the other was the one that was the healthiest looking out of them.

    No offense, but you probably should have just not bought it or looked for a better one.......

    If there was any white material on the rhizome, there is a chance that it will survive as long as you treat it ok from here on out.

    it was the last one and I really wanted it. I probably shouldnt have got it. And there is a little whitish color on the very end of the leaf.

    there's still a bunch of those 99cent vft at a 99cent store like 2 blocks away from me. some of em are probably dead already, its been 2 months and its still there. trap's not as red anymore, but it snaps really fast, so i'm guessing it must have some energy or must be healthy to snap that fast. look around your area, there might be some other store selling it. or just buy from andy.
