    If you don't mind me asking,
    What are the PVC tubes for in the bogs?

    Hi Sean,

    The PVC pipes allow me to fill the water reservoirs that I added to each bog. The idea behind burying the containers is that they will hold more water than saturated peat; they will leach out the water as needed. The pipes allow me to see if the reservoirs are low, and allows me to easily fill them back up with water during droughts. I had no problems with the bogs this past summer. Temperatures often hit 105 or higher and had hardly any rain.

    Here is a picture of the container before it was buried; this one went into the blue bog. The container is simply set in the bottom of the bog and is covered with peat.


    They can't be seen, but there are a few small holes punched in the top of the container and a few in the bottom.

    What are the two pitcher plants in the top left corner of the first photo? I like the tall one. As always your plants look great. I like how you engineer methods that make it easier for you to keep up with your plant needs.
