I was going to toss it on the compost pile, but then I remembered the propagation article on FlytrapCare.com https://www.flytrapcare.com/propagation ... -fly-traps Rather than write the plant off as a total loss, I decided to give it a try. I pulled all of the healthy leaves off at the base, stuck them in damp sphagnum moss, and put the pot in a south-facing window under LED grow lights. After a few weeks, I spotted the first green sprout at the base of a leaf! In the end, almost every leaf pull was a success, and I now have a dozen little G16 Slack's Giants in the works. I will definitely do this again.
