A month and a half ago, I put all my tropical sundews outside for the spring only to have a surprise late frost kill all but one of the dozens. Now I see that one or two are beginning to revive themselves. I decided not to throw them away because I had heard stories of their resurrections and, lo and behold, here it is. How should I proceed? Show I remove it and put it into a different container or leave it where it is? Should it get special treatment?
