I accidentally broke off a thick long red root while re-potting my 3 inch clump of Heliamphora Minor today. Do you think it'll be okay or did I just kill it? :( I had it growing in a 4" x 10" long glass cylinder vase so the center root ran all the way to the bottom and wrapped around some rocks.
I didn't realize this and just loosened all the growing media around the side of the vase before trying to scoop it out. When I got it out I noticed the broken root. :shock:

If it has a substantial root system it should be fine

If you notice decline bag it off and increase humidity until it starts growing again.

After that you can most likely remove the bag.
