Bog Planter Set


5 carnivorous plants, one each of the following:

  • Venus Flytrap (Dionaea muscipula)
  • Pitcher Plant (Sarracenia sp.)
  • Sundew (Drosera sp.)
  • Butterwort (Pinguicula sp.)
  • Bladderwort (Utricularia sp.)

Ease to Grow: Easy!
Soil: Upper Bog Mix or All-Purpose Mix.
Light: Bright indoors, full sun to partial sun outdoors.
Water: Consistently moist with mineral-free water.

This introductory carnivorous plant bog kit includes five specimens of the most popular and easy-to grow-carnivorous plants. The Venus Flytrap is world famous for its actively moving traps. A Pitcher Plant such as the Purple Pitcher Plant is very curious with no moving parts, but a pit fall trap that catches more insects than most CPs. Sundews grow a cluster of tentacle-like glistening traps that move slowly to snarl and engulf their prey. The Butterwort has pretty flowers, and sticky leaves that catch small insects. Terrestrial bladderworts have underground traps that catch nematodes.

These temperate, North American natives all grow in the same conditions, and are some of the easier carnivorous plants. Outdoor growing in a bog garden planter is ideal. If potted, they will do nicely in a small tray on a well-lit window sill during active growing months. During winter months plants should be allowed dormancy and will resume vigorous trap production come spring.

You select the size: small, medium, large, when available. For size and care information of each plant in the bog garden kit refer to the specific plant pages.

If ordered during winter months, plants may be sent that are dormant rhizomes, corms or hibernacula, trimmed of old traps. They will be true to size, but may not be showing their full forms. Given good growing conditions, they will emerge true to the size descriptions.

Plants shipped bare-root, wrapped in damp sphagnum moss. Photographs are representative of species, not the plants shipped.

Highly recommend.

The bear root plants came in a very well packed in a box, each were individually wrapped. They all looked good I did have a problem with one of them I contacted Carnivorous Plant Company and they replaced it right away even though the pictures I sent the rhizome could not be seen. The plant that was its replacement is gorgeous and ding very well.

All the plants I got were in great condition, the sundew even had a flower stock on it but sadly when it was replanted it went into shock the flower stalk died off but other than that everything else is growing very quickly and bounced back within the week!!

Great plants

I ordered two bog planter sets for a total of 10 plants. I wasn't sure if I'd get 10 different plants or two sets of the same 5 plants - it was the latter, which is fine, I just wasn't sure which it would be based on the listing.

All of the leaves on both Sarracenia I received had broken leaves that looked like they'd bent and broken during packing or shipping. However, they're putting up new leaves quickly so I expect will look fine after they establish and grow out a bit. The other plants look fine and recovered from shipping quickly.

I was very pleased with my plants. They were packed great and came through fine. They have been planted 3 days and are growing great.
