I thought it was a goner, but I brought it inside and put it on my growing table as far from my grow lights as possible and it has come back to life better then ever. I had thought it was a light issue but now I wonder if it was a humidity problem. Hmmmm.

That is interesting! When I transplanted the calycifida to the outdoor bogs I made, I took a small bulb with maybe 3 leaves and put it in the bog that gets more direct sun (close to the amount my VFT gets, ~7hrs?). The leaves burned quickly, but after a few days of rain, it came back! The original one ended up flowering and is spreading a lot in its respective bog.

The original gets more shade than the small bulb, as well as more water -- the drainage hole of the bog containing the original calycifida is higher than the one with the small bulb.
Both bogs have the same soil recipe, but I forgot what it was exactly

In dew we trust
