    I love seeing so many pygmies together! Drosera carpets are cool to begin with, but pygmy ones are possibly even cooler.

    I especially like your last pic at ground level through the "forest" of flower scapes.

    Hi belinda,
    Great pics - thanks for sharing! Bogs are the next best thing to nature and always great in a yard garden. Do you have any pics showing the whole pygmy-bog (overview)?
    All the best,
    Ron

    Really incredible. I started growing sundews in my bog years ago, and had a realy nice carpet forming of pygmies, but then worms too up residence and they bury EVERYTHING! Very frustrating. Every poison I've found so far to kill them will also kill goldfish and has a long half-life. The concern being that if the pond overflows, or vice versa, the chemicals could wash into the pond and kill the gold fish.

    I realise I'm late, but GOODNESS, what gorgeous pictures! Pygmies are my "first-among-equals" favorite cp. Seeing this many of them in one place just makes my heart go pitty-pat. You are indeed fortunate (and, obviously, skilled). If I had any skills to sell, I'd move to Australia myself.
    While I will grow most of mine in pots, I am going to try to set up a bog-type situation here (sub-tropical Florida), just to see if I can get something started. Wish me luck.
