Just the way I've found them in nature, growing next to pitcher plants. What other things have you put into the "bog"?

It doesn't seem to have hurt too much, the place is an amazing little piece of habitat!

Off the top of my head, in addition to the usual CPs:
Spiranthes cernua
Spiranthes odorata 'Chadd's Ford'
Spiranthes vernalis
Spiranthes sinensis
Calopogon tuberosus
Platanthera clavellata
Platanthera ciliaris
Platanthera cristata
Pogonia japonica
Pogonia ophioglossoides
Cypripedium acaule
Habenaria repens
Rhododendron atlanticum
Rhododendron viscosum
Iris cristata
Iris verna
Iris tridentata
Caltha palustris
Osmunda cinnamoneum
Polygala lutea
Polygala paucifolia
Sabatia dodecatheon
Sabatia kennedyana
Rhexia mariana
Rhexia virginica

I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting. Some are definitely experiments, such as the Habenaria, which likely won't survive the winter, and the Cinnamon fern which is mounted on a rock which sits in the water feature.

The really amazing thing is that we've had several nights in the low 20s F and the bloom is still looking good.

Here in MI I seem to recall them blooming in Sept. Other orchids on the same bog are Calapogon and Rose Pogonia (at a different time of year). Nearby, in a drier part of the bog, I've found Arethusa bulbosa, Cyp. reginae, and Cyp. acaule.
