    VFTs after dormancy

    Does anyone have any pictures of what their flytraps looked like after they came out of dormancy? I pulled mine out of the fridge yesterday and they don't look like they were doing so hot.

    Any pictures of your plants? I think they might have gotten too cold.

    I don't have a camera, so I can't get any pictures, but they're rather brown if that tells you anything.

    It sounds dead. VFTs are evergreens. If the plant is brown, it's probably dead.

    Thanks for the info. That's a bummer. It was my first attempt at refrigerator dormancy so I think I'll have to come up with a different plan next year.

    Isu, I wouldn't just count them out simply because they are brown. Pictures would be helpful. I can't pretend to be an expert, but many carnivorous plants will come back from the roots. Does the rhizome still feel sturdy or is it mushy?

    When I took mine out of the fridge last year, they were mostly brown with some green bits. I would treat them like they are live plants for a few months and see what happens.

    If I remember correctly the rhizomes weren't real firm, but they weren't complete mush either. I already put them back in the soil and they are in a south facing window. I am going to give them some time but I don't think I'll get my hopes up.
