    3-day update...
    No pictures sorry maybe next week to show minor progression.
    Plants were moved to an even sunnier location. I was getting paranoid...
    looking into water distillers, recommendations appreciated!
    Oh ya... and flies are EVERYWHERE...

    Here are mine that you wanted to see Honzo. These are the beautiful Rubras from Ryan after being kept in full sun. Growth halted with full sun so I may move them back to partial. They're in plastic pot within a nice ceramic seafood bucket filled to the brim with water.

    Scientifically proven that the lobster design helps them stay cool.

    Haha thanks Knuckles! ya this Texas sun can do a number on the plants.... In fact of all plants in the mini bog right now the one that is experiencing any heat stress to speak of (albeit very little) is the Sarracenia Alata... hmm perhaps the lack of anthocyanin makes it more susceptible? hmm...

    I will be updating this thread shortly! sorry for the lack of activity, I have doing a lot since I started this bog! all the plants looked beautiful at the end of the season and put out some nice growth. I can't wait for the new season. I just looked outside and the Leucophylla has a flower bud on the way! Will be posting pics in a few.

    Been growing Sarracenia and VFTs since I joined this website in the hot Texas sun, found best location to grow mine is actually at the edge of the patio where they only receive full sun from noon till sunset, being out in the yard in full sun has done a number on them in past years! Its pretty wild, how much of a weapon the sun can feel like/be depending on your location. Good luck on your endeavor! I'm moving to Austin in a few months, won't be able to take my plants, but it's nice to know there are some CP growers there!

    I saw that study. Lobster pots are the best.
