    Should I make my minibog all Sarracenia or all Venus Fly traps?

    Winter is coming up so I would like to start a minibog at that time. I'm having trouble deciding between a minibog filled with Sarracenia pitcher plants or all Venus Fly traps.

    What do you think?

    All Sarracenia, hands down. So much more variety and beauty. Sarracenia bogs are ten times more impressive than Dionaea bogs. Dionaea all look the same pretty much.

    Why not just mix them all?

    if you mix em, unless you plan well you'll end up with the tall sarr's blocking the light from your vft's which leaves you with dead vfts...

    the sarrs will never shade the VFTs:

    I second Xvart, but that's just me. Scotty, it looks great, but I don't like the fact that it's split in half. My opinion, though.
    Hope you choose soon

    I say minibog: VFTs. Maxibog for Sarracenia! Or, at least, a larger container than the VFTs. What size pot are you using?

    I have various size ones. My largest container has a two foot diameter.
