    outdoor sarracenia?

    Hello everyone,

    i know there are a few posts about growing sarracenia outdoors, but none that are about growing them in a cold Canadian climate. so, that being said, i got some very nice and healthy dormant sarracenias, both pretty hardy, from Blokeman and Carnivoure12, (thanks a lot guys!) i was wondering how i should take care of them in my mini bog that i'm going to make in the spring. how often should i water it? how much sunlight should i give it?

    oh, and the sarracenias are a flava and a purpurea subsp purpurea, along with some d. filiformis seedlings and a d. rotundifolia.

    thanks!

    Look through this thread: http://terraforums.com/forums/showth...=canadian+peat
    I'm sure there's a lot of helpful information for you in there.

    I can answer your last two questions right here:
    Make sure the bog always has a generous amount of water in it (moist to soggy).
    Give them as much sun as you possibly can. Full sun is always best.
