    Hi madmacks! Looks like the rhizome of the plants is a little exposed! You will need to make sure that the rhizome (white part of the plant) is completely underneath the peat. This can be hard to do with a plant like Coquillage, which grows down on itself and tends to push itself out of the soil, but it is imperative for the plants' rhizome to be under the surface of the soil.

    And regarding the size of the plant, Coquillage doesn't get terribly large. But the plant on the right side of the photo will definitely flower in the spring. Coquillage is a robust plant that flowers predictably and produces quite a bit of seed.

    Yes, the way Coquillage grows with the leaves curling back toward the rhizome, it is hard to pot it properly once it's uprooted.

    I drew some lines on the photo to show where the soil level should be relative to the rhizome. Hopefully you were able to get it sufficiently buried in the peat.

    Here is the finished product,I put down sand for two reasons,1st the traps were sitting on wet soil,I did'nt think that was for the best,so it keeps a drier barrier, 2nd for reflectivity, since the leaves curl down,it reflects light up,And it's now planted a little deeper.
