    Bog Garden on NC Coast

    Take a visit to Carolina Beach State Park, there you can find a surprising array of native Carnivores. Sundews, Venus flytraps and Pitchers if they haven’t all been poached, several bladderworts, etc. Quite beautiful species, all observable in a natural habitat. Currently the Utricularia inflata...

    CarniBog Bowl Build

    Just a little update- As you can see in the pictures, the bowls have matured quite bit in a short amount of time. Small flowering plants are popping up, and so far Ive left them as I think they add a nice touch to the bowl. They also help to keep the soil aerated. I ended up swapping out the...

    The mix the butterworts are in is a mixture of sand and sphagnum, with a little bit of peat but not too much. The sand should provide the minerals should it not? Is the sand a problem for the other carnivores? Since the butterworts don’t like to be too wet I’ll avoid misting them for the most part

    Thanks for the input! The nepenthes will certainly outgrow the bowl, that’s why I decided to not put any in the main bowl, the rockscape one. Depending on how happy the other one is, once it outgrows the other terrarium I will probably just take the whole thing down and pot everything...

    Plants came a day early! Good thing, the heat pack was only slightly warm when I received the box, would not have been good for them. So apparently I didnt read the descriptions right, as I was under the impression most came potted but in fact none of them did. Plants looked really good, the...
