Hey folks, thought i would post this pic of my little bog i made,most plants were put in late but all showed some growth.
what all you got in there? and what are you trying to keep out?
hey sradleye, there is a purp pitcher,flytrap,filiformis, flava,& a couple other sarracenia strains. I am keeping out cats, kittens and ducks
Yes, indeed. They were put out to grow too late for their growing period. Unless you had them growing some place else during their growing period. Otherwise it's normally a bad idea to start growing them so close at the end of summer since their dormant period is just around the corner. A short growing period followed quckly by dormancy usually doesn't allow them time to produce & store starch for the winter.
What kind of soil are you using? It doesn't look at all like peat moss. It looks too much like regular nutrient rich compost soil. Or am I wrong?
Hey Hunter,yea i know, they were bought from another and shipped in. was just overly anxious to see some CP,s growing.hope fully the weather stays warm here awhile to let them recover a bit more. we will see, the soil is just old canadian peat that was in the shed for years, nothing else in it. the fly trap has gotten huge and the filiformis is growing crazy good .
Well then, good luck. Try to keep them growing as much as possible but once growth slows down, let them rest.
My experience, when I got late growing CP, a couple of time Home Depot or Lowes selling them out of season. When they go into dormancy soon, the will come back next spring time smaller & sometimes weaker but they should recover by the end of summer. Sometimes I simply loose the plant.
So again good luck & happy growing! :-)
