Yes! Cypripediums have very small reserve buds on the rhizome on either side of the main bud, to guard against mishaps such as this. Given the right conditions they can develop but it might not be this year. I have heard from a friend that placing the rhizome into Sphagnum inside a plastic bag somewhere cool like under the greenhouse bench did work but havn't tried it myself. If the rhizome is small and badly beaten up I guess the chances are not good and yet another wild collected plant bites the dust!
