    Great looking bog and the plants look like they are happy. Keep up the good growing.

    Your photo has given me a reference to show my wife. I want to build a bog similar to yours, but she hasn't been able to visualize it.

    Thanks!

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!

    I collect rain water and air conditonar water and have dried long fiber around the outside of the bog. When it dries and you can see the dried ends showing.. that is also how i water the bog so I dont splash the plants and possably make the cloged with the soil they are in.. I water on the long non living fiber and the water seeps into the bog Hope that explains it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow, Love your picture, the venus fly traps look especially wonderful. What's the really long plant on the right side next to a pitcher plant? I would put in some non-carnivorous plants, like bog orchids. You seem to have the room for them.
