6 Plant Deluxe Beginner’s Bog Kit

$ 114.99

We have run out of stock for this item.

This is a great kit to make your very own container planting of a few different kinds of temperate carnivorous plants.  These plants will enjoy being grown outdoors, in many areas and will catch tons of flies, yellow jackets, and gnats.  Our kit is great if you are new to carnivorous plants, want a showpiece for your garden, or just want to get planty! And, we will ship this kit for free! If you order this kit in the summer, it’s best to place it in full morning sun outside, where it will be protected from the afternoon sun a bit, just to reduce the shock to the plants. By the next year, they’ll be fully acclimated and will not need as much protection.

We send you a 12 x 5 inch terracotta plastic pot, XX-large water saucer, two bags of peat and perlite mix (premixed), a little long-fibered sphagnum moss to cover holes of the pot, and a selection of temperate plants.  The plants we send vary by month depending on what we have available but in general, you will receive: 

Venus flytraps (Dionaea), American Pitcher Plants (Sarracenia),and temperate sundews (Drosera). We send an assortment of plants depending on the season and what looks the best! We send you plants either potted or in plugs based on availability. We cannot customize these collections.

Daniela will walk you through building your own bog and care instructions in this video:


Care Instructions
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.

6 plant bog kit

Everything is doing well after setting up the kit. Instructions on the video were very helpful except plants don't easily come out of the pots like in the video.

Bog is thriving, one of the flytraps want to die.

The bog kit my dad bought for me came in very height quality and well packaged, however, as you said, shake it a little and it all comes out. It did not work. It only worked once. The plants were very healthy but one of them wants to die. If I remember it was the bcp titan dying. And some nasty caterpillars ate my pitchers and ate my sundew clean! After all, it’s thriving.

I’m a beginner growing carnivorous plants. These plants arrived in perfect condition. They are beautiful healthy specimens. They’re packed very well and come with complete instructions. There’s also a very helpful video available. That shows you exactly how to plant them. I highly recommend and will purchase from this company again.
