Hello all, I accidentally dropped my VFT. One of the leaves with a trap broke off. It snapped off about halfway down the leaf (no white or rhizome noted on the breakage point).

With that being said, am I able to replant the broken leaf considering no rhizome is present?
What is the likelihood of that leaf growing?

The fact that you didn’t take any of the white tissue would be why you couldn’t get anything from in fact; You can only take cuttings by pulling off some of the white tissue with the whole leaf. I wouldn’t worry about it too much since it should be in dormancy anyhow.
