Hi Dom,

I just read through this thread. Love your bog. I hope to make one sometime soon so I was looking at yours for good ideas.

What is the pipe in the corner for? I saw you mention that you had some flooding and then showed that pipe, is it something to do with that?

TIA

19 July 2008: Some news. Everything growing well.

Okay, here’s what survived to our Canadian winter (514 cm of snow, a new record).

Dionaea muscipula: My 2 Dionaea died during winter :pleasantry:

Drosera rotundifolia: They’re all dead. I think it’s because I let them make flowers last summer (pumping too much energy).

Drosera intermedia: Most of them died, but a few survived (3-4). Probably for the same reason than rotundifolia (flowers + Canadian winter = bad)

Drosera anglica: All survived, even if they made some flowers last year.

Utricularia dichotoma: Holy cow! They survived! Dichotoma can survive to -20 C for a few weeks. It’s growing like crazy and making flower.

Sarracenia Danas delight: Alive, but looks bad

Sarracenia oreophylla: Alive, excellent health

Sarracenia judith hindle: Alive

Sarracenia pupurea: Survived, but look like it’s going to die

Sarracenia minor: Alive, not strong

Sarracenia flava (2 clones): Alive (Ornata suck, flava is awesome)

And new plants added this summer:

Drosera filiformis: 8-10 filiformis, they’re growing fast

Darlingtonia californica: A medium sized one, grow in full sun and already have 4 new pitchers. It should survive winter.

Dionaea muscipula (akai ruy, dentate and ordinary): Growing fast and big. The biggest one have 1 ½ inches traps.

Pinguicula vulgaris: 5 little ping

Sarracenia rubra: a small one

Drosera capensis: 2 small capensis

Pinguicula vulgaris:

Utricularia dichotoma that survived winter!!! (-20 Celsius for a few weeks + 500 cm of snow):

The pipe allow's water to remain at a certain level, so no flooded peat bog anymore.

Holy hell.....+500cm of snow??? :pleasantry:

Got a question, the way the leaves of your D. anglica all radiate outwards makes me think they look more like D. intermedia. Hm, just a thought, but you are sure they are D. anglica?

Yes, I'm sure these are Drosera anglica. My peat bog is still new (well, the peat moss in it), so the peat moss is loose and when it rains, there's peat moss everywhere on my plant's leaves. It makes them heavy (that's why Drosera leave radiate outwars).
