Hard to say without a photo. They can take very high temperatures and should only get into difficulty with insufficient water.

That compost does not look very wet or damp so I think it may be too dry and I would suggest the pot is far too big for a little seedling unless you have sown multiple VFT seeds in the pot.  How deep is the pot and is it standing in rainwater?  You could try adding water to the compost from the top of the pot or spray the plant daily with water.  It is still very young and fragile at this stage.  Another option would be to put the pot in a polythene bag for a few days or a week or two to keep the moisture in, but check it daily and change the air to make sure the plant does not suffer from fungus or rot.  Also, keep it out of strong sunlight until it has recovered.

Kind regards,  Rob

Are you sure it's a VFT?  Where did you get it from?
