    New outdoor bog Sunshine Coast, BC

    I was thrilled to learn these plants can overwinter where I live(?-crossing fingers), so I did some research, and filled in my pond

    I started with a layer of sand..


    Then a layer of just peat


    And filled the rest with peat and sand mix.


    I put in a 4" pvc pipe standing up with holes drilled around the bottom to check the water level and remove excess water if need be.


    I'm lucky to live near a native bog, where I found and scooped a little of this beautiful sphagnum moss


    I ordered a selection from a local grower, and got everything planted. Dug another pond and a little stream in behind.


    Drosera rotundifolia (apparently this grows in the bog that the sphagnum came from)


    Drosera intermedia


    Drosera anglica


    Sarracenia Judith Hindle


    Sarracenia purpurea ssp. venosa


    Sarracenia catesbaei


    Also have Sarracenia Scarlet Belle, and Sarracenia flava in there aswell. I'm looking forward to see how it grows for me, hope to have results like the other members of this forum
