    They will be fine, as long as you do the tray system and have water at most/all times.

    Halt is right; I have some of these plants doing just fine in trays and in a minibog. Like Halt said, just don't let the water evaporate away completely.

    Mini-bogs are just big pots used to hold water and "drown" the plants just like a real bog would. They are inexpensive and are usually large pots for like 7 bucks at Lowes.

    Yeah, my minibog is a 20-inch bowl planter with no drainage holes, lol. That's all, just fill it with 50/50 peat/perlite and top it off with some long-fiber sphagnum.
