    Thanks everyone. Nope, no kidding about the removal. I ripped out two really big S. leuco. 'Tarnok' clumps cause I didn't like the flowers. and thinned out most of the others. It came out to about 30 lbs, although if I shook off all the media it would have been more like 15-20.

    Nope, they were used to start two more bogs for friends I routinely trade with, also traded/sold some to some slippertalkers. I'll probably do the same in the fall of 2011.

    2011 bog update

    The bog just keeps getting better, over 300 Sarracenia blooms this year. And all my new Calopogon are in spike. I'm going to try a few mini container bogs this year. Given the beauty and easy of care of this thing I think everyone should hire me to put one in for them so I can quit school and start a bog garden business. I'd bet a large, well installed CP bog would serve as an excellent option for an attractive water garden (runoff retention gardens that are catching on as a green solution for reducing urban runoff).

    Spiranthes cernua the apomictic, this one really spreads fast and they are growing inside the Sarracenia clumps

    That's awesome Forrest!!

    I started a little potted group of carnivorous plants for the grandkids, and have flower spikes coming up on a sundew. I'm as pumped about it as they are.

    all I need is a plane ticket, lodging, beer, and some money for the plants and digging a hole. I guess I'll have to start local at first.
