    That reminds me, I was watching something about Ireland the other night and they had a 15 min. segment about Sundews and their native bogs - pretty cool macro shots they had.

    Well. I bought some pitcher plants. How deep do I plant them in peat and how most does the peat need to be? Do they need a lot of direct sunlight and high heat?

    Daddyo im not much help in the Sarr department as i only have a few. but i believe the rhizome stays at or near the soil surface. soil stays constantly moist through the growing season. mine are in 4 inch tall pots sitting in more or less constant 1 inch deep water

    That's how I do mine, too Rattler.

    In order to determine which species is the best, I am growing a bit of several of them. The only conclusion I have reached in my studies over the past four years is that I will need several more plants and a few more years to reach a conclusion [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] .

    That sounds almost like reseach for personal gain! LOL.

    Drosera... neps kings? Utrics jewels? You are a bit confused.... Sarrs are the kinds and pings are the jewels! LOL

    Edit: ooops! I almost forgot to help daddyo!
    Like BCK said you want the top of the rhyzome just below the soil lvl. The soil needs to be constantly moist. They like LOTS of bright direct sunlight, but you don't want to over heat them. They can handle it pretty warm but if you get a lot of dry sun you may want to protect them.

    It is done. Transplanted into a terrarium with peat and plenty of water. Do I need to mist it to keep it moist? Any last minute info for me on these? How often and what do I feed it? I do prefer bugs that don't fly. I have spent time looking at this and see that it is beautiful in its potential. Green has always been the color of new life and I'd like to see more of it as it grows. I must admit I am diving head first into this hobby. It feels incredibly rewarding. I placed some ferns in there as well for aesthetic value. After we finish creating a suitable environment, I might introduce some frogs. Thank you all for the helpful information and the humor!
