A just recieved a spiffy and healthy Green Dragon, along with my terrarium and soil from this website, and transplated it in along with my sundew.
Thing is, I have rather large hands, and the opening for the small terrarium made it so getting the plants in proper without causing too much shock to the roots was a bit of a problem. I managed to do a pretty good job with the Green Dragon and it appears to have suffered very little root shock as the leaves are still perky and don't appear to be wilting or curving. My Sundew didn't do quite as well, but I'm sure it'll perk up in the next few days as I didn't touch the roots and bother its surrounding soil too much.
Anyways, I did encounter one problem in getting the VFT in. During the transplanting process, I accidentally shuffled some of the soil around a little too harshly around it, and now 3 leaves are munching on dirt, with another on the verge of doing so as a clump is teetering reeeeeeeally close to setting the trap off.
Now, will this harm the plant in any way? I figure this would expend a good amount of energy from it, and the fact that I just transplanted it isn't going to help matters much. I'm also curious as to how I can get it out once the traps reopen without setting them off again, or getting that bit out from the other one so I don't set it off. Is it okay to take something really thin and just dig it out of the closed traps, or well it damage their ability to close again?
