    Thanks for the information. One last question; are the plants in pots, or are they actually planted into the medium in the bog?

    Mine are planted directly into the medium - a problem if you want to take one out or move it!

    I also grow carnivores. I used to grow many more indoors but those darn orchids ended up taking priority for space and light. Most of my carnivores now are in my bog garden, along with some orchids Phaius, Platanthera, and Neobenthamia, I promise there's orchids in there but they're dwarfed by the Sarracenia.
