just a quick question how do i tell if my plants have root rot

thank you chris

If the plants suffer root rot it will prevent water from entering the stem/growing point/leaves. So the pitchers will quickly shrivel up and look like the plant needs watering!

Some or all leaves may die back as you describe, if the rhizome has died or if they're subjected to exceptionally cold temperatures. Without direct physical examination it is difficult to absolutely determine fatal root-rot. It is best to wait until Spring, when conditions for growth return, before examining the rhizome to make a final determination.
