    Hey. I have only been involved with CP's for about a year now. Started when I worked in landscaping with Brooks Garcia who is amazing with his hybridizing, growing and conservationist work of Sarracenia.

    My first "bog" was 12x20" and had a few starter plants. This spring I divided everything up into larger containers with a little more flair. I live in a loft with restrictions, so everything I do has to look good -even a bog.

    What I am doing right - D. fillimormis fillimormis. Started with one plant. I have been removing older leaves as soon as they look yellow. This seems to encourage more side growth and I have divided one plant in 1 1/2 year into 14. I am amazed.

    I am really looking forward to starting with the D. Fillimormis All-Red variety. "Farmer Dave" has been generous enough to get me started with those seeds and I am anxiously awaiting their arrival and development.

    When I have more D. rotundifolia and D. intermedia, I will be happy to share!

    Enough about me, here is my handiwork so far...

    If this is today, imagine tomorrow.

    Great set up you have going there.

    You should have no problem propagating those 'dews. The species you've mentioned are like bunnies the right conditions....which it looks like you have.

    Welcome!!! If you are doing it right with D. filiformis you will be doing it right for some 75% of other CP's. Your plantings are beautiful, but appear undrained? You want to be very careful of the purity of your water in this type of arrangement and it's advisable to repot into fresh mix annually. Good Growing, and we all appreciate your offer to share when possible. You sound like family to me
