Q.Will Dropping My Moss In Rooftop Rain Water Affect It’s Tds After Washing?

Hi, I just recently repotted my venus flytrap and I accidentally dropped the sphagnum moss onto rain water on the roof with algae growing on it. Will it affect the tds even after soaking it with distilled water once? And if so, how much will increase? I also wanted to ask, why do the leaves look droopy?

If you got it out right after dropping it, then it will not affect your pH. I wouldn't worry.

As far as your flytrap goes- Repotting it causes a great deal of stress. It is likely droopy because of the repotting.
