It is the current state of the project. I had to move things around to plant the Pogonia.

I wanted to check on the plants today, and apparently greatly annoyed a couple of lizards.

Callitriche palustris new sprouts must be delicious, because they're gone.

For some reason I feel like that lizard was very mad and judgmental.

Thankfully these ones aren't as big and destructive as yours!

Have you made progress in your battle against them?

Yes, it's starting to shape up!





The weather is still very cold, so growth is moderate. The orchid is only starting a second leaf, but its root system got enormous in the meantime.




The real star of the show is the Drosera!

those looks good, and that moss is incredible. could you maybe list up the bog species you are planning on using?? i have space for a few small plants in the bottom of mine, which is more or less a bog but i donít really know what to put there. i have a paph on a higher, drier mound of sphag so far and itís not looking the happiest....

would greatly appreciate it, thanks!
