I've ordered a bunch of different cultivars this season from different sites and some randomly shed their leaves and recover (with much smaller traps) but soon start putting out new large growth while others show no sign of shock at all. It's probably related to the previous growing conditions and the hardiness of the cultivar that causes this. Keep doing what your doing and it'll bounce back.That is exactly what happened to a few of VFTs when I received them. I had about 3 separate Royal Reds that looked completely healthy when I potted them up. However, 2 of them died back almost completely and are now putting out new traps at about 25% the previous size. The 3rd plant also experienced some shock but recovered a lot better than the other two. The plants all came from the same source and were potted in the same soil mix so I suppose there is individual plant variation when it comes to transplant recovery.

The sand you want should be 100% silica so the warning shouldn't be ambiguous like that.
What type of quickrete product did you get? Do you have a picture of the whole bag, and what about a shot of the sand?
If I were you I'd repot it. It looks like you have perlite, assuming it isn't miracle gro brand you can just use perlite and peat.
