    My Mini Bog Garden

    Hi everyone! First time trying to post pics on here, so hopefully I do it right :-D I created a miniature bog garden for my little CP collection a bit over a month ago and so far it seems to be going really well! I love checking it every morning to see what it has captured out on my balcony. I...

    ?? 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...

    VFT wintering question, very small cupped traps

    Earlier this year I bought and planted a cupped trap VFT in the large bog. It died back and due to various health reasons the bogs have been slightly neglected, I just spent some time cleaning them out and found a small grouping of VFT's clumping less than 2" x 2" near where the cupped traps...

    Mini Orchids for trade

    Looking for Heli's I don't have, HL Neps, or Sarracenias to go in my bogs. Most are very good sized divisions with the exception of a couple of Masdevallias which are 2-6 leaves and the Bulbo's are 2-3 pseudobulbs. I also have a bunch of small epiphytic ferns that are great in terrariums if...

    Wanted: Lycopodium inundatum - Bog Club Moss

    Like the title says, I'm looking for some Lycopodium inundatum for the bogs. I had a small amount of it several years ago but I think I accidentally gave it away with some Sarracenia. I have lots to trade if anyone has any available. Thanks.

    Downside to having a mixed planting of Sarrs

    I have a mixed planting of sarrs in my front bogs. They bloom sequentially which makes it easier when trying to hand pollinate and bag separate species. Right now my purps and flava are finished, the rubra are in full flower and the psittacina and minors are just swelling their flower buds...

    Sphagnum moss and peat bogs

    Hi everyone. The last couple of days i've been studying (I'm currently finishing my Biology career) and I've realized I'm using a non renewable resource to cultivate plants and i'm helping to destroy the habitat for the same plants i'm cultivating. What the hell? I mean, it's terrible. But I...

    Reminiscenses of a Sarracenia grower

    In about 1968, when I was living in Westminster, California. I was an avid organic gardener, In the back yard, I had an organic vegetable garden, not very large (about 10' x 40'), but it contained a large variety of plants. I had two bee hives atop a grape arbor. I also kept a rooster in one...

    Free Trash, You Pay Shipping

    In the course of doing fall stuff at the nursery, weeding, dividing, repotting, etc. I was left with a bit of two very nice NA native bog plants which make very nice cp companions in an outdoor temperate bog. I was told to just throw it out, but figured someone would enjoy it, so I'm offering...

The red one in the center came as a hitchhiker with a Sarr from Meadowview a few years back. It gets small 5 petal yellow flowers in the summer and turns scarlet in the fall. The...
