    That's how I got started. I kept seeing the bowls in this forum and I was already looking for a way to keep the peat from freezing in my pots.. and I found a giant bowl at work.. so I went for it! I really can't wait to see the way it will look next year after everything is 100% settled in. I doubt I'll get a whole lot of growth this year, but I know that sarrs grow incredibly fast underneath the soil! Those rhizomes get HUGE.

    Wow, it makes those traps look TINNY how big is that pot?

    I did a bog thingie that I tore apart this year... It was really cool looking though (and not a bowl)


    I can't find any from the very start... so here is one from near start to on near end... (just under 2 years between these 2 pictures)

    Whoa! I can see why you tore it down! The capensis just took over!

    The bowl I'm using is... 22 inches in diameter. It's only about 8 inches deep (and that's in the center) so I kinda wish it was deeper but it's got tons of surface area. I also think it's now complete.. I really don't want to squeeze anymore sarrs in there. I might add another VFT or so but that's it.

    Ahhh, that explains it!!
    That's where the stock of capensis for my store came from I think I got 65 full size capensis. And the binata had roots about 2 ft long, so i chopped those up and put them back in the pot, now it's lots of binata plants (and a few more capensis from some roots i left in there haha) I was amazed with the growth of the S. minor seedling and S. catsbaie over the 2 years in this thing.

    andrew You cant even see where some of those Sarr flowers are coming from!

    What species was in it? S. purpurea I presume?

    See, I have a way of keeping a capensis under control, should it somehow find its way to my bog bowl... My bog bowl is a temperate bog bowl.. it's gonna get reeaaally cold. I don't think capensis can handle the winters here since I have trouble getting sarrs to.

    I really can't wait for my bog bowl to look like a CP jungle.

    I think I was to try and add SOME kind of drosera though.. something that will go dormant but can handle temps in the teens.
