    Portable Bog?

    Is it possible to make a "portable bog"? I live in an apartment complex, and I don't think they would take too kindly to me digging up the place. If this is a stupid question, I appologize in advance.

    Not stupid at all! Sure you could do it depending on how much weight you could lift and if you can give it the dormancy period required. Others will chime in but sure, you could do it!

    My Sarracenias, VFT's, and temperate sundws are all in portable bogs of a sort. I use buckets, with handles and tote them to the cold attic for the winter. Here are some pics:

    In the general sense, a bog is just a water logged area. So you could techically make a bog out of a big pot that doesn't drain water.

    I'm not sure if this would fit your bill or not but it's portable and the plants are loving it.
