    I am a bad CP owner.

    Okay I am a CP killer. I have caused the deaths of many CPs for not taking care of them. Awhile ago i bought 3 minibogs that had pitcherplants and sundews. All of the sundews of died and only two of the bogs (I am unsure but I doubt it) still have their pitcher plants. Because I stopped caring about them and didnt. I am sorry for what I have done but I have two problems. 1. I think the two are dead. I havent watered them much in a long time though they still are green. 2. The mini bogs non CP plants have overgrown like weeds. No chance of them coming back ?

    It depends on the species and how long and how dry you let the bogs get. They plants could be dormant. Weed out the non-CPs (just make sure they are non-CPs) and re-wet the bog mixture until it is damp. Maybe by springtime you'll start seeing some growth.

    Just firmly and gently pull them out. It might be easier with the mixture damp/moist. A pair of tweezers would be helpful with the smaller stuff.

    Well the thing I was wandering about is if the Pitcherplants are still alive and I tear out the ones near it I might tear up its roots.

    They will be fine. They are very hardy.

    I'd just tear up the "bog" and start fresh.

    Huh? Are you saying to just forget about them or to take them out of the bog and into pots?

    I'm saying you could take them out and put them in pots with fresh medium, or put fresh medium in the old bog-pot and plant them all together again.

    That's just what i'd do.
