I guess the trauma from losing one of my plants from Rhizome rot made me jump the gun. I thought it was suffering from rhizome rot when one of the pitchers flopped similarly.

When I checked, the roots looked fine and rhizome was still white when I pulled out the dead growth, from what I can tell. The rhizome was also still firm and hard, and no bad smell.

Rhizome looks smaller than I thought.

Even if I wanted to save one of the growth points. All the roots were at the back of rhizome and so I’ll essentially have nothing. The growth points are all attached to one rhizome so it’s literally one plant. I’m really hoping that it’s not rhizome rot. :cry:

At least it got new soil.

They're really resilient, if you break post off the rhizome of, even if it doesn't have roots - it'll still likely survive and start growing roots
