The VFT that was producing 1" leaves last Fall is now sending up leaves and traps that I project to be ~1/4". In between than and now was a successful dormancy, a gradual warmup and photoperiod, and placed outside, on top of a tarp covering 55 gallon steel drums. The traps following dormancy were ~3/4" and it started sending up 2 flower stalks. Then I decide it would weather a literal storm in a different location. Unfortunately, while I was gone over the weekend some birds or squirrels ate the stalks and all but one leaf. For a month afterward there was no new growth, and the one remaining leaf stayed green. A couple weeks ago new leaves emerged from 2 or 3 locations. There are now 9 of them and they are small. they haven't opened yet, but they look like they'll be ~1/4". Is this normal? Has anyone experienced this before?
