    Pretty much.
    Where do we go when we just don't know,
    And how do we relight the flame when it's cold?
    Why do we dream when our thoughts mean nothing,
    And when will we learn to control?

    Mine are in the process of going dormant too. Most of my dews have formed their resting buds. I just emptied and removed the water trays. I don't know if I'm going to try to move the bogs or not. I may just decide to mulch them and leave them be. The smaller mini-bogs/pots will be moved out of the weather within the next couple of weeks.

    My bogs are too big to move and I've always just let my Sarras push through the winter here. They usually make it through great and come back stronger the following year. The only ones I'm concerned with losing are the Florida species and hybrids. I bet they do fine though. The only reason I'm a little concerned with them is I lost a couple D. filiformis 'Tracyi' last year to the cold I think.

    Mine are too big for me to move by myself which will mean they will probably stick it out in the weather this winter.

    Good to hear you have good success with dormancy. I've had problems in the past. I hope to do better this year. Last year I lost a lot of VFTs and some D. filiformis species as well. They were either too wet and rotted or became too dry and died. I'm using larger pots for the most part this year; should be more stable I hope.

    Good luck with your Florida plants. I'm sure you'll do just fine with them .

    Thanks bloke! It's really nothing fancy. It'll make more sense when you have a visual. Is photobucket blocked at work?

    I am going to have to try your watering method....I have a pond liner that I was thinking of making a bog out of but I was not sure about watering.
