    taking stock of the bogs

    Finally had a chance to take stock of the bogs..first chance since uncovering them a couple of weeks ago.
    EVERY flava and rubra sarr I have are putting up flowers
    The Jonesii is pushing up 2 obvious new growth points
    The minors don't look too happy..no new growth showing when every other sarr has now leaves forming
    something has eaten and/or stolen every temperate sundew and every VFT from the front barrel and minibogs.
    It's a tough life being a Sarracenia farmer

    I seem to recall that my minors were the last flowers of the spring each year ...
    All the best,

    Hi Chibae

    Glad to hear that teh plants are doing so well, dont worry too much about the minors, mine are outside and are nearly always the last to do anything, being upto 4 weeks behind the others.

    Dont give up on the temperate sundews either, they may just have died back to their roots, mine do, and could reappear later in April/May. It is just possible that teh VFts have done the same, but unlikely if there are no signs of dead/old leaves.

    cheers
    Steve
