I bought a Nepenthes at Lowes yesterday and opted to wait until morning to repot it. I did put it up out of reach of my cats and remove the little dome. I repotted this morning and it has a 1/2 (or less) inch black root. Although I am fairly new to carnivorous plants I am pretty sure that isn't good, I'm thinking root rot. I repotted it in a better medium but I suspect it's a lost cause. Is it possible it'll regrow new roots in a better medium? Or is it safe to say I bought a dieing or dead Nepenthes?
Also, I went through it's current medium which was moss and I cannot find any other roots. There is nothing resembling a root, of any color. I'm about to repot the Sundew now, I'm praying I don't lose it too.
