    No, it didn't survive. This year I'll try some plants for fun, like Utricularia longifolia. I know that it will die, but just for the fun of having it during summer.

    Well why don't you put one outside and keep one inside so that you'll always have one?

    I won't put ALL my longifolia in my peat bog, only half of it.

    Cool, maybe putting it in the peat bog will conjure up a flower or two?

    Okay, here some news: My secret is that I'm planning to build a pond with my peat bog, and a waterpomp would make a waterscape that go threw the peat bog. BUT!, I got a job (biology technician) last week far away from home, so I won't be there to finish it until 20 August. I don't have the time to add new plants, but I managed to add plants from my ancient peat bog.

    Major coolness Dom,

    But why did you name your new bog "Sam" in the third picture?


    Very nice. Looks like a lot of work though. You must have a lot of energy.

    Keep it up!!

    Sam's my name.

    That's right, he loves me, lol.

    Very beautiful bog. I had doubts of myself making one of these in time because it was so cold here in East-Central Wisconsin during the winter, thinking I would need like 36 inches of mulch and all this extra stuff for it to survive! Yet all you do is put some dead leaves and a plastic sheet on it. We get a lot of snow sometimes too. Not TONS but we do get some . This has motivated me, and you have beautiful plants! Your common coldness in January and February is near our record! So we usually get much lower (-25F is usually the lowest it gets in the depths of winter at night, it's usually in the negatives all the time or in the single digits during Jan/Feb)
