    I just thought I would post some pics of my bog garden. All the plants are still pretty young, as I just put this in during the summer of '04, and all the plants were pretty young from TC at the...

    Well, good news. All of the Sarracenia survived. I thought this very unlikely, but I wanted to see if it was possible . . . I guess it is! So few people around here grow CP's (or at least I don't...
