First attempt in barrel bog
Posted 26 April 2011 - 20:53 PM
I decided to construct a barrel bog by my pond and put some hardy CPs on it.
I was wondering if I could put some temperate pings along with the usual hardy suspects (Sarras-D.capensis-Dionaeas) as the temperature might rise quite high during the summer. I presume that Darlingtonia is also out of the question due to the high temperatures. What about Cephs if I put them with their pot and have them removed in winter?
Here's a photo of the new construction:

A ceph may be possible, but definetly remove it in winter, the can take light freezes, but not -5 below. One thing you should know, D. capensis is Sub-tropical, it can go dormant, but it's best not to let them go through it, try something like a Filiformis, or Anglica, as they're temperate.
Good luck with you Mini-bog

A couple of temperate pings are native over here, but they are usually found in high altitudes, not on sea level as my setup is.
