    If you kill it from repotting, or it dies from root rot, its just as dead. Only difference is that its more likely to die from root rot than potting stress. Id go ahead and repot it asap. Try and get as much media around the rootball as possible when you do it. That will help keep any stress to a minimum.

    A bog is by definition a water logged peice of ground. I dout there is much ground water moving around under one. As for undrained pots, don't keep them to wet and the plant will be fine.

    That is exactly what a bog is...

    Bogs are like bowls full of peat and water. They tend to be self-contained wetlands whose sole source of water is rainfall. Bogs typically develop in shallow low lying areas over layers of bedrock. Because rainwater can provide only limited nutrients, bogs are the most nutrient-poor type of wetland.

    Fens are connected to small streams or lakeshores and may also receive water from surrounding uplands. Unlike in bogs, water slowly moves through a fen. Importantly, because fens have an outside supply of nutrient-enriched water they are able to support lusher vegetation and a greater variety of wildlife than can bogs. Nevertheless, fens are still relatively nutrient-low habitats compared to most other types of wetlands. Fens, contain an abundance of sedges, rushes and grasses.

    In a bog there is no O2 in the water. The lack of 02 is what stops decomposition from happening. And that is why the peat accumulates.

    Although you get alot of different opinions, this is the best place I've seen for help. Just remember, distiled or rain water is the most important and keep researching. Read all of these forums and you'll do fine.
