Making a Bog Garden

In 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 Blackburn
