Program for April 18, 2018
Making a Bog GardenIn the wild, most carnivorous plants grow in sunny, acidic, nutrient-poor wetlands called bogs. Home gardeners can replicate this environment in an outside bog, or in a mini-bog planter, and grow a diverse array of species like sundews, pitcher plants, and butterworts. You can also include orchids and other noncarnivorous wetland plants to build a fascinating miniature habitat. There's no need to hand feed your carnivores - insects will readily come on their own. Expect to see houseflies and wasps fall prey to your flytraps and pitcher plants.
Presenter: Chet BlackburnJoin Chet Blackburn, the third longest member of the Sacramento Bromeliad & Carnivorous Plant Society Society, for a trip to the bogs of Auburn, Wednesday April 18th, 7-9pm, at the Garden Arts Center.
