Very hard to say from a pic. Your best bet is to cut away every part of the rhizome that is not white and as firm as a carrot. Where you can see the rot creeping up, it doesn't look good.

all of the bottom is brown, ive cut away as much as i can but its brown where the roots connect, otherwise the roots are fine. should i just leave it and see if it comes back?

okay, as theyre goners ive thrown both out as theres no point of return, the roots came right off

can you reuse the soil if you rinse it out first or no?

what is that media? i see you are in EU but that looks like wood chips like a potting soil may have.


i love the part 7:35 - 8:05 i just want to crop that and put it on repeat.

its this as it was all i could get in my small town in scotland (so jealous how folks in america can just go out and buy peat and perlite) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Carnivorous-Pl ... B0CCJGBJN2

the “nutrients” sounded REALLY iffy but i flushed it all out loads and my vfts and cape sundews are doing well in it after 4 whole weeks

"Nutrient-Rich Composted Bark: featuring fine composted bark" alone sounds like it would kill it.

also some of the reviews says it kills flytraps

im not very sure, i probably could but ive heard theres issues with salt content and i simply just dont have the time to rinse it over and over and over again, ive considered sphagnum moss but its expensive in bulk :(
