    Skip stratification?

    Hi, I recently got some sarracenia seeds from a friend who has a bog tub in his backyard. He collected those seeds remained in the old flower about 5 days ago, which means they've spent their time outside through the whole winter. I'm wondering if I still have to put them in the fridge? can I...

    bog garden box.

    I've been thinking about creating a bog garden, but I don't really want to dig a gigantic ditch in my backyard. I was thinking about building a garden box instead. Would this work with most Sarracenia and vft's. I'm in central Ohio. Thanks.

    Mature S. Minor Divisions

    I have a few S. Minor divisions, one or 2 Alata cuttings, some typical but large VFT's (that have been growing and flowering in my outdoor bog with the S. Minor) and a few small Cephalotus and/or cuttings (I would only trade one of the cephs/cuttings for something really good). The main S. Minor...

    ?? 4-season Container Bog

    I have a project in mind for the spring and I wonder about how to set it up. We have a rather small yard with a good deal of shade, but we have a sunny patio area where I would like to situate a container bog. I intend to use a cedar planter box with a pond liner or maybe a plastic stock tank...

    Coming out of refrigerator dormancy

    Hi all, I've got a few bags of sundews, sarricenia, and pings that are about ready to come out of the fridge. I put them in bare root, and seemed to have not had any fungal problems. Any advice on bring them out? Do I need to acclimate them gradually to outside temperature or full sun? They...

    It has been established that the CP are not from earth,meteor,comets...breaking up here deposited them here, there were probably many varietys that were lost because the fragments didn't land in bog conditions.

    Hi! I'm a new member here. I do not keep any carnivorous plants, but I have several other gardening projects.

    Minimum dormancy length?

    New England has had a few hot days recently, but I didn't think much of it until today. I looked at the bog tray and saw a forked leaf sundew unfurling a pair of new leaves. One of my VFTs appears to be doing the same. I cracked open a window and the room rapidly dropped to a reasonable dormancy...

    NECPS Bog Rebuild

    The NECPS finally decided to take some action on our very overgrown bog at the Roger Williams Botanical Center in Providence RI. Here is the bog before the demo. It was extremely overgrown with grasses, sedges, ferns, oxalis and many other various weeds. Plants had just been stuck in there...

    What is this guy?

    I saw this on the dried out leaf of my D filliformis today. I've heard horror stories of caterpillars that eat the bases of dormant plants, and so I put this in a box until I can assess what it is and what I should do with it. If it eats those annoying other plants in the bog, it goes back in...

    Digging up orchid bulbs?

    My grass pink and egret orchids just died back to bulb form. Because they will be inside for the winter, should I dig them up and put them in my refridgerator to keep them cool and rot free, or should I just leave them in the bog garden along with the sarracenia and other things? It seems to get...

    Greetings from SC...

    I got into CPs while working for the SC Dept. of Natural Resources. My work brought me into contact with carnivorous plants in their natural habitat here in SC. I just become enamored with them. I met a propagator on assignment once and he sent me home with a mini bog garden. I've been growing...
