    Another Update.

    I had to throw together another bog. Considering I ran out of time to get it together, it didn't turn out half bad I don't think.

    Here's some pictures of it going together.

    I didn't plan on using this container. It was supposed to be used as storage for my pots and what not. It didn't happen lol.


    I poked drainage holes about three inches down. I guesstimated.


    I made another reservoir from a smaller container. Almost too big.


    I poked holes all around, plenty in the top and sides, only a few in the bottom.


    Together with PVC pipe.


    In the bog.


    Media going on top. It's mostly peat, with only a slight amount of sand.


    Complete. Ignore the mess please .


    Dente VFT


    Red Dragon


    Extra P. titan I had. It hasn't experienced any burning whatsoever. I guess my grow lights inside are pretty bright.


    D. intermedia, a little difficult to see (thanks to you know who you are ).


    S. minor


    Original bog.


    Are these D. capillaris? If so they have certainly changed from the way they looked from being in the house. That would also make them a couple that I rescued from the drought that were naturally growing on my property last year. There were hundreds; they are yet to come back this year.


    VFT with another plant growing from a cut flower stalk.


    Small S. purp.


    D. capensis that I threw in.


    S. alata that was damaged when I placed newspaper over the bog when we had a few light frosts.


    D. fil.


    D. fil. 'traci'


    S. 'Dana's Delight'


    Mini Bog is coming along.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Water garden.


    And my helper, Dinky. He's resting after a hard day of supervising.


    Thanks for looking,
    Crystal

    im not trying to shoot down your idea!
    not trying to be harsh..
    I just think its a lot of unnecessary work for no gain.

    Particle size doesn't matter? Look up osmosis and semi-permeable membranes. It may not matter in your examples but it does matter.

    Maybe you should try adding U. gibba in your water garden. It'd look even better!.

    Ps: I love your dog, I have a Golden Retiever too!

    I haven't had to water either bog garden yet. The reservoir works great for watering over time. It also fills back up when it rains.

    Thanks Capensis! I haven't added U. gibba yet. I'm afraid it will get taken over with algae. I keep having to let the water garden overflow with tap water to keep the algae from getting out of control. I guess I could try a small amount.

    Golden retrievers are such great dogs! Dinky is part Lab too, that's where he gets the wider head, shorter nose, and slightly shorter fur. He's such a goober, but I love him!
