    How to stand up to rain?

    Whenever i have rain, i bring in by bog bown (i have two binatas) and i can't do anything for my bog. Whenever it rains, my sundews get hammered down, and the next time it rains, i find them dried up and dead. Is there a way i can make them stronger? There were a few i had a while ago (don't know which kind) which were good, and my capensis are good, but these binatas and filiformis die. What can i do?

    They should be able to handle light rains, but during heavy rains, try covering them with a tarp. I have never done this, but I think it could be done by attaching the tarp to wooden or metal posts, and the tarp couild be taken off when it was over. I don't know what else you could try if they are in the ground. I wouldn't think that would be a problem though....

    hope this helps.

    my binatas and filiformis took a hail beating without a hitch a couple months ago.
    and a ton of rain, but ive since moved them into my greenhouse since i love seeing the ridiculous amount of dew built up on them hahaha.

    It all depends on where you get them from. Some places grow them in low humidity conditions. don't mention the name though. but if the place grows them in a greenhouse, you may want to slowly accumilate them.

    It's from a so-so well known grower in oregon, not the one ran by two men, but the other one, that has other plants and antiques. If you know what i'm talking about

    yup I know who. I got some plants from him, particullary filiformis. while my sarrs are currently in a bit of a hiccup, my tracyi is doing great. his plants are greenhouse grown I believe, so if you don't have high humidity, it may be a good idea.

    They shouldn't have actually died, though. They may look dead on the surface but almost always send uo new growth in a few days.
