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: 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.

Super small, but everything is growing well!

Small bog set

Plants came in great dormant condition. Excited to bring them back inside and have them start growing in a few weeks. Shout out to Colin. I contacted customer service after my order was confirmed, I was worried about the extreme cold temps (below 20 F) while my plants were being shipped. He told me they would hold off shipment until the weather was a little more favorable and he threw in a heat pack free of charge.


Read through everything on the site, could use a bit more detailed instructions for beginners. Super excited to see them flourish!

Not what was ordered

I purchased the Bog set and upgraded to size large. Paying over $100 for five plants. The plants arrived in good shape and were well packaged to be mailed without the chance of drying out. However there’s no way these were the large size. I understand it’s Dec and these plants are dormant right now. But each of these plants mailed to me were the size of two of my fingers, with a head about the size of a quarter. That’s considered large? Unhappy with the size. Maybe the company made a mistake or maybe my definition of large is very different then theirs. What’s small? A seed? But the plants did arrive healthy.


As far as I can tell, my plants came in good, dormant condition. I will revise my review, when they come out of dormant state.
