    I'm sad :( My bog garden experiment failed.

    You guys remember how I planted everything at the edge of our lake? Well everything did GREAT but when I came up yesterday I saw that ALL my VFT's and Drosera froze and were mushy and just... omg gross. I'm so sad about that Luckily all of my sarracenia made it, I guess because they were planted deeper. I dug everything up and have got a bucket full of rhizomes that need planting

    I'm just really sad about that lol. The good news is that after i was washing all the clay off of them I looked down and a lot of my sarracenia produced new crowns. I guess the cold was good for 'em I'm trying to look on the bright side and focus on that. And this means I get to buy new suff!

    I'll post pics when I get home from the mountains. I feel like a potato farmer.

    Well to me they look like a cross between an elephant ear tuber and an iris lol. I guess everyone has a different opinion.

    I'll be home wednesday and post pics.

    I haven't seen too many but the few that I've replanted have looked like crappy muddy rocks with crap coming out of it.

    The roots look nice and healthy. Should be no problem growing those back.

    Oh yeah the Sarracenia didn't take a licking at all, I'm just paranoid and didn't want them to freeze too hard and turn to mush NEXT year.

    Sarracenia can take a LOT of abuse... I have one that has been sitting in a bowl of water for about the last 3 weeks and not only is it still alive, its sending up flower stalks..
