    I like aeration, and do it myself for minibogs, but not on a large scale. I&#39;ve never tested it in a double-blind way. It may be useless.

    That said, I have been advised that a thorough,...

    Brisco, Ram, thanks.

    I will have to think this over carefully. This thing will be in my basement over the winter (cold and sunny down there). A hole might make a mess when I water it.

    Hmm--I could put a hole near the bottom and run clear tubing up the side--this should show water level clearly, assuming a good seal.

    That&#39;s a pretty big assumption, of course.

    They look phylloidial, but I&#39;m sure they are just weird.

    No aphids. We don&#39;t get them here. I know that seems odd, but they just don&#39;t like the little plot out back. Maybe it&#39;s the plant mix.

    Even filtered sunlight that is good for the plants can be too much for the container. If you get a lot of condensation, and even filtered sunlight will do this, you will get fungus.

    Two new leaves are now up--no signs that they will even form into pitchers. Tiny, mutant hoods at the tip.

    Looks like it&#39;s trouble. I hope I don&#39;t lose the whole bog.

    It&#39;s been cold and dark lately--I&#39;ll check to see if the lack of light has reduced the fluid in the hoods.

    It rains in Columbus--a lot.

    A very heavy rain seems to have knocked my J Finn and rubra pitchers down. I&#39;ve propped them back up with wooden kebab sticks and wires. Is this OK for the plants?

    Thanks, Cole.

    Yes, I have had a pitcher grow, open up, die and wither away, while the original pitchers sit there, very green indeed. This is the second &quot;weak&quot; one.
