It's my first time in the forum sort of and it is to ask about the now reduced lifespan (probably) of my VFT.
Last night I repotted it into a 5" pot as it was in a 2.5" one with very poor soil.
I used a moss peat: perlite: sand ratio of 2:1:1 and left the existing dirt around the bulk of the roots.
However, on removal of my plant from the existing pot the leaves curled up underneath the plant making it tricky to repot. The plant got soil 'stuck' all over it as well.
After some brief panicking and recovery work it is now in the pot. One of the traps got soil in and is closed, and several other traps also closed up. It is now back in sunlight with plenty of water etc. and looks a bit better than last night. But still is a bit curly/droopy.
I have several questions:
a) What sort of chances of survival does it have?
b) Did I use the right process?
c) Is there anything I can do to ensure it's survival?
d) Any other comments welcome!
Dis-heartened VFT owner.
