    Well, I think a bog planting looks best when the plants are shorter than 1/2 to 1/3 of the pot's width. If the pot is proportionate to the plant, it looks more like a specimen planting than a community one. Root depth is also a consideration - most Sarracenia do best when they can send roots down deep. If I were going for a bog effect with Sarracenia, I'd probably choose a whiskey barrel or something of like size.

    I think scotty's bog is freaking AWESOME!
    talk about a sweet bog... quick everyone back to the drawing board...

    that'd be a good example of when I said unless you plan well


    xvart knows something about a small minibog I rescued up here in lawrence, needless to say it bounced back from the brink of doom to absolutely crowd this pot haha

    Well would you look at that?! It certainly wasn't that full when it left my mom's house, I'd say, lol. A plant in need is a plant indeed. Nice pot.

    I'd at least have some dionaea or, for even more variety, a few drosera. The dews add a nice touch to the bog, kind of give it a more natural look. All sarracenia bogs bore me. I think all Dionaea could be cool if you do it right. Just look at WildBill's "field of screams" pic and you'll know what I mean.
