PS I like the Pongonia best. Could I grow those varmits here?
Easily. If you can grow Sphagnum moss, Pogonia just comes along for the ride. Do you prefer P. ophioglossoides or P. japonica?

I've never grown sphagnum moss, at least on purpose. There's moss growing down by the creek sometimes, but don't know what kind it is. I have some moss in a terrarium... the one I told you about that I got on a rock from husband's family graves in Guernville CA? But I'm not doing anything... it just grows in there. Not sure I would know live sphag if I saw it.

So I would just put one in with my carnivorous plants? My little "bog" is an experiment, as I've never done carnivorous before... other than a couple of failed V.Flytraps. Which didn't actually fail... I didn't know they went dormant and pitched them.

Once my little bog gets filled up, I plan on transferring them to a really big pot I have. But it appears they grow pretty slowly, so I'm probably a few years away from that.

Both those P's are gorgeous... the first one pictured seems more ethereal. Then again, I'm scheduled for first cataract surgery appointment next week, so everything looks pretty ethereal right now.

PS Not even gonna try to remember how to spell those names! I have a hard enough time with the darned orchids.

A friend sent me several corms of grass pink orchids, Calopogon tuberosus last year. He told me he thought there might be a var albiflora among them. Apparently only one has come back this year, but......

Platanthera clavellata, the Little Bog Club Spur Orchid. One of the easiest and most adaptable native bog orchids. It spreads readily both vegetatively and from seed. Each tuber produces a single flower spike. The clump started as a single tuber collected 3 years ago on private property with permission. It was growing in a very
shady situation in clumps of Sphagnum in and along a spring run through heavy woods, but adapted nicely to full sun:

Wow, that's awesome!! So interesting to see them cultivated; I've only seen pictures of them in the wild before this.

I couldn't wait until it bloomed to post this one! Pecteilis radiata 'Ginga', which wintered over in the bog, in spike:
