VFT Walking Towards the Light

I’ve read that you shouldn’t give up on a VFT even if it loses all its traps.  If the rhizome is fine then it may regrow leaves.  This one has been slowing dying so I decided to remove it from the soil and spray it with fungicide and replant it.  The rhizome still appears to be ok but I’m not optimistic.  Below is whats left.

Compare it to its brother (purchased the same day) who’s been exposed to the same conditions:

Notice the flower stem in the middle.  It grows much taller than the other leaves to attract insects which will pollinate it.  I’m letting this one flower to harvest the seeds.
