Beautiful plants! They don't look neglected at all!
Can you find the VFT?

The old smaller bog, this is the only thing that survives

Fortunately, I am back in the game this fall and able to care for my CPs the way they deserve to be cared for and next year look forward to returning the bog to pristine condition, replace VFTs and temperate pings/dews that were lost, and be able to give back to this awesome community once again.
looks awesome DJ. luckily sarracenia dont need much attention....just add water. lol.
Yeah, that was my saving grace over the past year and a half as far as watering goes, the bog pretty much took care of itself in that respect. Sarrs are awesome for bouncing back from poor conditions if caught in time, ha. Temperate dews not so much, but luckily they produce lots of seed to start over when desaster strikes.
A big part of the reason your plants are still doing so well is you have had the foresight to set up your bogs so they don't need a lot of watering, it seems to me. I'm bowled over that you have such great plants.

Flower stalk city out there!
Your old smaller bog looks like my old bigger bog. Tall grasses have consumed it.. I mow all around it, but I don't have the heart to trim the grass (and pitchers), or the time to weed.
Looking good bro, I'm gonna have to pick your brain about bogs at the November meeting. My buddy and I are determined to at least put one together between the 2 of us next summer.
