Dont worry about the getting buried/washed away, as the substrate settles and compacts, the roots grow and the whole lot consolidates (in a relatively short space of time) that will cease to be a problem. Just keep settling them back till that happens.
So when pitchers get knocked down by rain or whatever and end up lying on the ground do you cut them off and allow the plant to focus on growing new pitchers or just leave them and allow them to photosynthesize since they're still green. I ask because I'm not a huge fan of the way it makes the bog look.
I just let them be. That's what happens in the wild, and no one cuts them off in the wild. If you want to cut them off, go ahead, I don't think it will hurt them any.
looking great! A word of warning tho the junk that blew across from the neighbors looks like Populus Deltoides seed and you may find yourself pulling little cottonwood sprouts over the season. Get em early as they grow fast and the tap root is a BEAST! I am so jelly of your bog tho. I will have to stop in more often for ideas and my bog pics fix. Thanks for sharing!
