    Well, it's time for some 2015 updates. Some plants are MIA. Some are off to a slow start. Some may not be off to any start at all.

    Normally, I prefer to inset photos directly I the thread, but owing to computer problems (namely the fact that iPads really suck at copying and pasting) I can only provide links for the moment.

    The bog:

    Drosera rotundifolia is absent. Sarracenia psitticina, rubra, and flava rubicorpa are all undetermined at the moment, as are a couple of my tarnoks. Most of the rest are pitchering, my hurricane creek white is budding.

    Well, after comparing my map pics to my current layout, it's interesting that the filiformis managed to move more than six inches from where it was planted. Not sure if there were seeds (I never saw it flower) or if other things were to blame. There were signs of mouse activity in the bog over Winter.... Perhaps contributed to the losses? Who knows.


    I do have some Starr flowers popping open, and a vet sending up a spike, so I will have some seeds to trade or share out at some point.

    There is also another small bog off to the left for drosera, and one of the other bog plants. We ended up moving the cranberry out, and planting it in its own special container alongside the blueberries.

    The main bog was getting a bit more shaded than I liked, so I moved the iris, and other tall plants, away. Left only he short stuff, like huechera surrounding it. Much better. Also dug up and re set the stones, as they were getting buried in overgrown grass...

    Used old crock pots for mini bogs. They are sturdy, non draining, and easy to move if I need to. Right now there are 3 surrounding mini bogs, one for D. Filiformis, one for D. Intermedia, and one for Venus fly traps.

    Looks so beautiful maybe i can actually try doing something in the only area in my yard that isn't cement or pavement. I just gotta hollow out this old tree Stump i was gonna kinda use it as a plant pot but i may just rip it out and put in a few small bog pots like u to grow sarrs since i think they would fair better with more space and prob have a better chance being grown outside in MA. But u never kno with the unpredictable weather we get here!
