    I have my sarrs, vfts, temperate sundews, etc. outside in 18" garden bowls. They aren't in the ground, just sitting in a sunny spot outside my front door. The bowls are pretty cheap, about 5-7 dollars @ lowes or home depot. I used roughly 50%-50% peat-sand mix, with a top dressing of long fibered sphagnum to keep the mix from splattering when it rained and also as a moisture indicator. I opted for the bowls for a couple of reasons: 1) they're moveable. 2) no laborious digging required. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
