We send you a 12 x 5 inch terracotta plastic pot, XX-large water saucer, one gallon soil mix (with long-fibered sphagnum moss to cover holes of pot) and the following temperate potted plants to transplant into the bog (we ship these plants potted to avoid shock):
One venus flytrap (Dionaea), one larger American Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia), one smaller American Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia), one thread-leaf sundew (Drosera), one forked sundew (Drosera), and one rosetted sundew (Drosera). Bladderworts (Utricularia) will be included FREE in at least one of the above potted plants!
Peter made similar bog gardens on his TV appearance with Martha Stewart! Here is the video:
Sun: Full sun outdoors
Water: Always sitting in at least two inches of distilled or purified water
Temperature: 40 degrees - 80 degrees, can even take temperatures from freezing to 100 degrees but only for short periods
Dormancy: Plants in this collection require a winter dormancy starting in October and ending in February. Many of the leaves will turn black and die back during this time. Leave them outdoors in full sun, sitting in distilled water during this period. If you live in an area that snows; over winter them indoors on a sunny windowsill in an unheated room or garage. Still sitting in full sun and distilled water.
