    Very Nice Bugweed!!

    One question: Do you only add the white vinegar solution every time you change media? (7 or 8 years)

    Would a more diluted vinegar/water solution added once every
    spring have any postive effect? Just thinking...

    Very nice. Lucky for you bugweed you can grow these plants outdoors. That size and health are unattainable in my area.
    that makes no logic

    Finch, with some variation, the health and size is attainable almost anywhere. Except where it is too cool in the spring and summer. Having lived in Rapid City. They got monstrous and loved it there. Winters were easier to deal with than I thought, too.

    Jealous? Why? Stick around here and meet more folks, and ask. Just ask for plants and a whole lot of great and genorous folks would be glad to help a collection grow. May cost shipping, but that's fairly cheap.

    Walter T., vinegar can be added to the media once a year in amounts of 1 cup white vinegar to 3 gallons of water. My circulating water bog is working fine. There has been NO media change with this bog in 17 years, and all the VFT's, ping's, and drosera, along with the sarracenia, are just great. Best of all, though the tray system works, it is an easy way to culture rot in your plants. Constant media change is not the way I wanted to grow plants, so I made a bog that works like one in nature. I do plan to make a bigger one and retire the old, but that will be its first and only media change, ever.

    Hey Bugweed! Would you mind me asking how you set up your circulating water bog? I ask because I'm planning to do something like that for my soon to aquire Darlingtonia californica.

    ill soon be getting a bunch of darlingtonia... from the ones in the past that i have had they grow quite easily. i uses 50/50 chilean LFS and perilite. you dont need the circulating bog unless you really want to. all of my cobras have died though because of some evil frezing wind.
