As tou can see on the picture very strange colour of the plants, nor green nor yellow. This leaves will probably get black, but I hope the roots are still healthy for new growth. (And finally I have possibility to put 1:1 peat perlite mix as you can see...)
So, what do you think about this order?

Looks to me like it has been frost bitten. Thats always a risk when shipping plants during winter.
Did you notice if the rhizome looked white and healthy when you repotted it? It may have gone dormant. I would keep it cool and drier for a few weeks then give it warmth and lots of light and see if it wakes up.

It is just repotted and I can't yet get it some light period. North hemisphere,Europe... I think the rhizome was good, but all plant was watered as you see. It is now in moist soil on windowsill, and I will see what will happened...

Looks like it gonna die, even if the rhizome is OK. The leaf's color is strange. Try to remove them and let's hope the rhizome is OK. Was it red when you were repotting the plant?

You can't pronounce a Flytrap dead until spring. I've seen some remarkable recoveries.

That flytrap was definitely either frost bitten or dried out during transit. It could recover, but it's impossible to say if it will or not without looking at the rhizome.

It is surely frost bitten,because it was moisten when I unpack it. And if I can remember now the rhizome wasn't looking dead.
If any new growth appears in next couple of weeks,I will upload a picture...

OK, that's great news! I'd bet that it will recover with good care. Please keep us updated :)

Did you contact them about this with pics? They seem like nice people. Maybe they'll send you a replacement.
