    It would take a long time for pine needles to acidify the soil because they decompose at a slow rate. They are saturated with oils that inhibit fungal growth, and this might be a benefit when used as a top dressing on soil.

    I tried to keep sundews in with my dart frogs and they got trampled so it's separate terrariums now. I do have a Nep in with some chinese gliding tree frogs, but it's too soon to say whether it's going to work out.

    Speaking of moss, does anyone know of a good source for large bags of Canadian LFS? For some reason Home Depot and all my local nurseries are no longer carrying it.

    Thanks,
    Todd

    OSH has large bags of Canadian peat. Not to sure if they sell LFS though.

    OSH? Sorry, I haven't learned all the abbreviations yet.

    Thanks,

    Ice is referring to Orchard Supply Hardware. Last I knew, OSH was only out here in the west, not found in the east. Since Sears bought out OSH (b 4 K Mart bought out Sears), maybe they will sprout up out there. I have not heard that they have spread from this coast yet.

    Thanks Bugweed. So, I guess they don't do mail order? I guess I'll keep looking for small specialty nurseries around here. I'd rather give them my business anyway. I don't know whether it's a good sign (bogs being protected) or a bad sign (bogs in decline) that I can't seem to find it lately, but it's not making it easy getting this bog garden off the ground.
