A few weeks ago I picked up a Spiranthes cernua from the botanical garden and placed it in a distilled water filled tray beside my bog garden. Today I noticed that most of the leaves are have turned yellow.
The NECPS finally decided to take some action on our very overgrown bog at the Roger Williams Botanical Center in Providence RI.
Here is the bog before the demo. It was extremely overgrown with grasses, sedges, ferns, oxalis and many other various weeds. Plants had just been stuck in there...
Last year I took a trip to the northern portion of Michigan and the southern portion of Upper Peninsula. On the trip I encountered various carnivorous plants and orchids.

Hi! I picked up a pot of these the other day and I didn't like the stones it was growing in so I repotted it into some peat mix. In the process a small division broke off. It has two leaves and a very nice tuber. Looking to trade it for a small Rose Pogonia, Grass Pink, or another temperate bog...
Last year I posted pictures of the wet area at my house where several carnivorous plants grow. I have since done much to clear invading shrubs and exotic grasses. Here is a photo from January.
The plants have died back completely for the winter and I cleared much of the invading overgrowth...
