    I tried something similar when I first started out with the CP's. I believe in the same jar even. That time I failed because I used pure peat and I didn't know to even rinse peat at the time. Moss and algae grew with in days and choked out my first attempt at it. I have had alot of luck lately with LFS as a top dressing mostly, but also as a complete planting medium. The source for my LFS is not pristine, but pretty darn good for inexpensive bricks of LFS. From my source it does tend to grow some algae, but it takes quite alot longer than the peat does at any rate. That should buy the bladderwort and the sundew enough time to shade the surface. I may have to figure out a way to black-out the root zone soon though.

    Think I will giveaway half a dozen or so when the next round of strikes puts on a bit more size. Let me know if anybody is interested in this idea...I will slow down on the cuttings if I can't find homes for a few of these. I just threw away a bag full of leaves when I repotted the thing in the pic above. I got to thinking after wards I should have filled in some space with them in the mini bog. Them leaves strike very fast.

    Time for an update on the N. x 'Miranda' that was happily munching bugs when we last saw it. My first upper is coming along nicely. I suppose it's not quite completely upper, but it's so different that I think we are headed in that direction.






    The night or two after the bug munching incident it got a bit too cold for my little monster and the leaves look like dog poo, but I think the temp shock may have produced an inadvertant side effect:

    I could't get that growth point to hold still for a pic to save my life. This was like my 20th attempt before I gave up.

    Drosera madagascariensis continues it's ascent.


    Drosera graomogolensis pushing through a little transplant shock. (Thanks again mass!)


    Drosera indica? The scented pink/purple flowered form. (Thanks again SDCP's!)


    You guys and all your cool terrarium set-ups have inspired this. It's a 10 gal. tank being stocked with some drooling sundews.
