What should I do? Repot? Split?

Hello everyone,

My sarracenia had been growing very well last season but it was left dry a few days, now I was expecting it to recover but it has not been doing so well. I was wondering what I could do to get it back growing nicely and healthy. It has not produced many pitchers and has not grown.

I believe it has adequate sunlight and water.

Any suggestions would be welcome!

If it wilted then it might take it a while to start growing again. You could leave it alone or replant it but if you replant it will stress it even more and it could take a long time to recover. I'd put the pot in some sort of container with water and leave it alone.

Stand it in water constantly, remove the short dead leaves from the rhizome by holding the rhizome and pulling, allowing air and light in, to promote new growth.
It will be fine this year in that pot, split and repot in spring next year to prevent further stress.
Cheers
