    Speaking of you, thanks for the plants and moss! The bog looks much better

    Well, I already had the pond setup. See this pic "BEFORE"



    Here's "AFTER" again:



    It cost me $30-40 to convert it and make it as-is.

    One more thing:

    Notice how the pond is rotated and moved closer to the light? It took an hour or two to do that.

    Hopefully they will take off! Looks like a good set up.

    I'm very glad you think so. The main thing is that half of the pond/bog is a water reservior, with watter-filled 2 litre bottles packed into the bottom, water between the bottles, then shadecloth covering the bottles and soil resting on top of the shadecloth...and then there is that watering tube to pump water out, etc.

    The reservior is cooled greatly by the cold earth (cold in that spot for obvious reasons) and that transfers over to the plants. In fact, I now have a nice place for rotundifolia and such plants!

    Nope. I did have to do some re-landscaping, and a major hole digging (a precision hole to fit the shape of the bog. That's why it took so long.)

    Here is an update. Do you think they have a shot at doing well? Each pitcher has gotten consecutively smaller...much smaller for the most part.
