Hello everyone! I was pulling some black leaves off my VFT, and one came up with part of the rhizome attached. Will my VFT be okay? And are there any precautions I should take?

Thanks Camsdad66, and it's nice to see you again sanguinearocks101! I put the leaf in the soil. I didn't think I could grow anything with it because the leaf was black. I guess we'll see what happens ! :D

You’ll never know until you try.

This happened to me.
Just a small piece of leaf.

I wasn’t even trying to get it to strike.
Was just lazy and threw the dying leaf in the moss.
