I have been having a great time reviewing all the old posts here and looking at all the GREAT pix.
I'm wanting to build a mini bog to put some of my VFTs and Sarracenias in.
I have seen pix of some really nice looking minis using some kind of big bowls, and some nice looking ones using tall planters.
I assume the tall planters provide more root protection from hot and cold, while the bowls are lighter and easier to move around. I already have a couple of tall 16 inch diameter planters, I was planning to use one of those.
Pros and cons?
I also see some minis that seem to have pearlite in the medium, I was was under the impression that sand should be used instead of pearlite in anything other than a largish pot.
Lastly, I live in Southern Illinois (USA) zone 6, is it ok to build my mini now and put the plants in, or is it too late and I should wait until next spring?
Sorry for all the noobie type questions.
