Yes, any amount of green means the tissue is still alive and has a good chance to start growing again. Good luck!

Hey Matt, I have a question if you see this. The VFTs are still alive, in fact I believe one of them is kind of growing. I think the other is on it's way out. The one that is producing growth though, it's looking like the plant is developing leaves without traps. Is that normal? Like it's trying to develop for photosynthesis and recover or something?

Yes, when a flytrap is stressed it can produce leaves without traps. This can also happen when a flytrap isn't receiving sufficient light.

Any green leaves will photosynthesize and provide energy for the plant, so any new growth is good even if it is deformed or doesn't have traps.

Thanks man, I was hoping it was something along those lines. The smaller of the divisions appears to be pushing out new leaves at a decent pace, not much going on with the larger one. It's getting I'd guess about 10 hours of full sun at it's current location and then partial. I did keep them out of direct for about a week though to try to reacclimate to the outdoors. I have another one from you guys that is doing stellar though at the same spot(SD Kronos).
