    i live in ohio and was thinking about making a bog and just using some flytraps from Lowes in case they die it wouldn't be the ones that are growing good inside [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] is it to late in the year now? i couldn't just put them right out into the dead sun cause they will get burnt right? so its to late in the year i would think. what do you guys think?

    I would put them outside for now and slowly introduce them to higher light levels and the weather. Don't just put them in the heat of the sun. Plant them in the bog while they are dormant in the winter.

    In that case I would wait and put it together in the spring.

    I would say you could go for it now actually. Keep the flytraps outside for a couple of weeks to acclimatise and then plant them trying to keep them in the same peat they are in at the moment, to avoid root disturbance. It's still nice and warm, so shouldn't have any problems IMO.
