    Drosera intermedia seed trade.

    This trade is for D. intermedia seeds. The plant was sold to me labaled as "Hardy Sundew, Drosera intermedia". I have had it for 18 months. It has flowered profusely in that time, frequently dropping seed in the LFS substrate of the terrarium where it lives, resulting in herds of volunteers...

    Backyard Bog-In-Progress.

    Last year, I decided to buy a Rubbermaid style plastic tote, sink it in the ground, and put Sarracenias and VFT's in it. It worked great, but looked a little too redneck... for my tastes anyways. Come fall, I trimmed off the taller pitchers, and put the lid on the tote, and buried it under a...

    Hello from Michigan

    New to the forums, and still learning about CP's (Who isn't?) Been keeping them for about 5 years now. It's an addiction, that's for sure. Just put in a bog in my backyard last week.

    S. purpurea in Theodore Wirth Park (Minneapolis, MN)

    Took a 10 mile stroll from downtown today to visit this park, which I only recently realized existed (a great personal failing after seven years here). Chief among the attractions is the Quaking Bog, a small naturally occurring sphagnum bog (park literature says it has an estimated age of around...

    June 2014 NECPS Meeting at UCONN and Bog Walk in CT

    This past Saturday we had one of our most interesting meetings to date. Mat Opel was kind enough to host our June meeting at the UCONN greenhouses which he oversees and maintains. Here are some pitiful pics of a small part of their collection. Greeting you right at the door of the Life Sciences...

    Got my degree, time to get back into the hobby!

    Hi all, I used to be pretty active on these forums 4-6ish years ago. I took off to pursue my electrical engineering degree, and I graduated last June. I recently took a job here in Greenbelt, MD (near DC) working at NOAA (less cool version of NASA). I work on the Joint Polar Satellite System...

    Bog Sarr Die Off

    So lately I've noticed something disturbing in my bog. After a strong start to the growing season, many of my plants seem to be suffering from untimely demises. This is my second year with the bod garden so I'm not sure what's wrong as the situation hasn't changed since last year with the...

    giant S Dixie Lace for trade

    My technological situation dictates that embedding a photo at this time is not going to happen. I'll try to do it later or if you're seriously interested, I can email it. I am relocating my bog garden and want to make some room. I have a few of these plants available and at least one is...

    Axelrod's Bog Garden

    So at my girlfriend's apartment there is a nice section that used to be a garden but was overgrown with weeds. We decided to rip up all the weeds and get a nice veggie garden going. I reserved the last section of fence, just the the left of the azalea bush for a bog garden, this area gets the...

    Wisconsin Bogs

    Hey Guys, So I made a trip to summerton bog in south central Wisconsin. I was wondering if anyone has ever visited any bogs in Wisconsin and found any cps. There wasn't much there so I didn't take any pictures, unless a bunch of pics of sphagnum would've been interesting. I can't imagine many...

    Check this out, bog Cobra out of place

    I spotted these Darlingtonia sprouts peeking up amongst a clump of VFT in the bog. It seems one of the bog cobras is sending out some stolons and decided this looked like a good place to sprout, haha. [/url]Cobra out of place 2014 by Djoni C, on Flickr[/IMG] [/url]Cobra out of place by Djoni...

    I have a healthy clump of flava that I am looking to trade. There is enough for easily three divisions. I am interested in vfts, dews and pings for a temperate bog, zone 7.

    Bog Lily

    Just picked a really nice plant at the one local nursery that has a half decent selection of bog plants. Crinum americanum, the Bog Lily, native to the SE US from NC on down. It's going into the barrel on wheels with my Lilium catebaei for right now, but as I increase the numbers of both plants...
