Hi everyone, I recently got a VTF a while back in September and it was doing really well for a while in the small pot it came in. About a week ago I moved it from a small pot into a larger deeper pot but hadn't realized I needed to prepare the soil. I'm pretty sure it got stressed due to the new conditions and lack of water initially. A lot of the heads died off and these 3 bulbs were what was left afterwards. I just wanted some advice from anyone here if it still looks like it would be able to regrow. The rhizomes all still feel firm when I touch them but I wanted some second opinions. I'm just worried since this is my first VTF and I don't want to have ruined it.

The soil it’s planted in looks to be a bit too dry. Is the media safe for CPs(nutrient free)? Other than keeping the media a bit more moist keep doing what you’re doing and it might pull through.
