Hi,
Last winter my large Utricularia reniformis rotted away! :( I did rescue a few small bits of healthy stolons which I repotted. These started to sprout some new small leaves this summer. Now these have been eaten by a *%$$$! caterpillar! As hopefully it has sent out some new growth from below the soil what are the chances it might still survive?

Anything is obviously just a guess but once a rennie starts to get established it has those extra thick stolons to fall back on. I would think you should see some resprouting after a bit.

Although, every large-form U.renifomis that I've grown has been more particular (& weird) with it's growth than the medium-sized forms...

Glad to report four new leaves appearing! Now just need to keep the slugs & caterpillars off them!
