Uh oh everyone,
I have made a minibog using a rubbermaid bin and filled it with Paver Sand that I bought from Lowe's and Canadian sphagnum peat. *Then I layered the top of it with semi-live sphagnum along with countless sundew seeds/hibernaculum that I had spread in it a while ago. *My question right now is, is that paver sand toxic? *It was the only type of sand I could find at Lowe's at the outside gardening area and it stated in the back that it was suitable for many things, from construction to play sand. *But when I was mixing and washing it, I found little clumps of sticky mud or something that reminds me of stuff they put to make the sand better for mixing in with concrete.
As of now, a few sundews in the mix are still dormant, a few hibernaculum have turned brown, and a few have started growing. *Anyone think if I should change it? *I finally found "play sand" at another nursery and am thinking of dumping my old bog out to replace with that. *The once-green sphagnum doesn't seem to be growing and is instead turning mushy black-green.
