    Cool bog! I have those wasps here, and these ones that have a long thin thing with a ball at the end with their stinger on it.

    I had the typical flytraps since sometime in Augest 07 then in spring they really needed a new pot so I bought a pot at wallmart and I soaked both flytraps in distilled water to loosen the peat and lfs off the roots after that I put them in the pot in total I got 9 or 10 typical flytraps from to pots then later on I bought a Judith Hindle, dente flytrap, red dragon flytrap, and a purple pitcher plant on April 9th of 2008..

    I had this for since April and I'd try to keep out any leaves that fall in and I try to mist the LFS daily and water it needs it also it's been more warm these weeks around 80F so the dried LFS been getting more dry so far I've been lucky I haven't had any grasshoppers damage, squirrels, or any bad pest problems yet.

    Thanks for all the comments on my bog I hope next year it'll be even better.

    Springs on the way it's slowly getting warmer and switching from being cold to warm so I took my bog outside this is what they look like. I put them in my garage near the garage door so it kept cold, but not too cold and they look pretty good so I'm glad.

    I spent most of the day cleaning things up cutting dead traps and getting all the pine needles I used as mulch out.

    I included two pictures of my live sphagnum moss it's starting to green up better now that the suns comming out more often. I think I'll make another container of it I sorta mess up the first container.

    I can't wait for the weather to be more stable, but intill then I'll just have to take them in on days and nights it's going to frost or freeze.
