    Yesterday I went outside and took a couple of pictures of my tiny tiny tiny bog in the morning and the afternoon. It cost me $15-ish to make (not including the plants)
    It has kept many plants in zone 6-7 (im in the middle of the border) alive and healthy.

    entire garden



    d. madagascariensis- ty jimscott



    p. vulgaris and grandifolia



    sarracenia flowers





    s. purpurea



    D. rutundefolia



    S. Leucophyllia next to s. leuocophyllia tarnok





    S. Rubra var Rubra

    Dionae muscipula var :

    dente



    big mouth



    low giant



    mistakes that show how large the low giant is ( considering this drosera is about two inches tall and that the acual bulb/ center of the vft is 4-5 inches away.

    Is there a pump or anything in your pond? How do you keep it from getting green?

    Utrics, daphnia, ostrocods, and snails all help keep it clean and clear. (anarchis and cabomba caroliniana also are huge algae competitors!)

    An added bonus is that i harvest the extra daphnia, snails, and ostrocods to feed my utrics (daphnia+ostrocods) and my other plants (snails).
    The snails daphnia and ostrocods reproduce extremely quickly and I use 1'x1' fabric to harvest them. During winter I harvest daphnia and put them in small jars and feed them daphnia and they reproduce fast enough to be fed to plants weekly.

    btw do you really race in those big scary dangerous suicide machines? Sure it may be fun and fast but too many people die in racing than to my liking.

    Nothing as expensive as the 787B in my sig. But I do attempt suicide in my RX7 from time to time at the track. I can't count the number of "stupidly close calls" I've had. One of these days it'll prolly kill me, but untill then I'm having a blast.

    BTW: Are those snails really small and black? My pond has tons of those along with lots of fish I never feed but it still stays green. I'm gonna look for some daphina and ostrocods to add to mine.
