    pots vs. mini bog

    Should I grow my small collection of CPs in pots, or all together in one minibog?

    i put mine in minibog, because i'm sure that i wont be trading those plants away.... since it'll be a tad harder to repot if you put it in minibog.
    for pot, it'll look more organized(IMO) and easier to repot and if one has pest or disease you could just move it away.
    and i grow seeds in pots.... its up to you i guess..

    bogs are better, so much more natural looking. Pots with one plant have no personality

    It really depends on what the plant is. So I'm going to have to go with both.

    I used to keep mine in pots, but ended up putting them in mini-bogs for several reasons. First, I think it looks better. Second, I don't have to water as much, and lastly: It gets real hot and dry here, and having more soil around the roots in the bogs vs. the pots provides a better buffer for the plants' roots. In the pots those roots got too hot!

    Same here. I lost a few Sarracenia before learning that it was their roots that were getting fried, not necessarily their leaves. You can imagine my frustration. Minibogs are really the only way to go for Sarrs and VFTs if you live in the desert. Or else you gotta have a really big, deep tray with a lotta pure water that'll heat up and evaporate away too fast and too often anyways. I've yet to grow dews in a minibog, can't wait to try them!
