    Hey -

    I have heard of a few people burning their in-ground bogs, and it makes sense since that happens in the wild. Who has experience with this? When is the best time to burn? Are there any special considerations?

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -

    PT, Write Brooks Garcia on this Forum (Sarraceniaobsessed) about that. He has huge bog gardens he fires up every year that he can. He can help you.

    Yes, I know of him burning his bogs. I was hoping for multiple inputs, various situations and growing conditions.

    Yes, I know, for sure. Not trying to downplay Brooks...he's certainly an advanced grower.

    Patrick,

    You might try taling to someone at ABG. I beileve Ron Determann burns his personal bogs and I think the ones at the gardens get a burn now and again as well.

    Thanks for the lead - the ABG will get to hear from me yet again (I email them almost constantly about carnivores and orchids).
