    VFT Minibog cleaning - pics

    I decided that since my VFT's were so over grown in my mini bog that it would be a good idea to do some cleaning.
    Here's a pic of some VFT bulbs.



    The mini bog after being thinned out. It has VFT - Red Dragons, VFT - Dentate Traps, VFT - Typical, Drosera filiformis var. filiformis FL Red, and Drosera rotundifolia.



    Here's a shot of the left over VFT's.



    As you can see from the last picture, they were packed like sardeens.

    To tell the truth when I started I had 1 - Red Dragon, 1 - Dentate Traps, and 1 - Typical. Over a few years they just multiple like crazy. I thin it out every 2 years.
    Although I did not plant any of the typicals that came out of the mini bog back into it. I planted 5 - 6 typicals that I had growing in another pot that has much larger traps by at least 1/2"and a much more robust plant back into the mini bog.

    Hey Steve
    gr8 growing there.
    So does your filiformis red amke it through the winter outside?
    if it does, then it can take cooler temps,than i have been keeping mine.
    Lois
    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.
    Every small plant doesn't reach maturity.


    Who needs speelcheck?

    Mine grows inside one of my mini-bogs outside (Netherlands) - it has completely 'died', I wonder if it will come back when the weather gets warmer...

    Lois, I have a D. filiformis red that survived the winter outdoors here in San Jose.. but I also had a potfull that died... I would be a little more cautious with the red form than the others.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    Lois,
    Missed your question.
    I keep all my temperate plants outside till the weather hits freezing. Then I move them into my unheated garage till the temps are above freezing again. My garage stays around 45-50 degrees.
