One of my readers sent me some photos of his his Bog! I asked if he’d mind if I shared them here. So a big thanks to Aaron.
Aaron lives in Rockland County, New York. I had no clue where that was, so once again, google came to the rescue. Rockland County, is on the west side of the Hudson River, north and a bit west of New York City. According to Aaron, his climate zone classifies as a Zone6b.
The bog is a simple plastic pond liner, purchased at Lowe’s, filled with a peat-sand mix and sunk into the ground. His outdoor collection consists of S. flava, S. leucophyla, S. psittacina, S. purpurea ssp. venosa, Dionaea, D. rotundifolia, D. filiformis, and a bunch of as-yet unidentified Sarracenias that he planted as rhizomes.
