Nothing livens up a classroom windowsill like some predator / prey action. Carnivorous plants are the mightiest of houseplants, but many can only thrive in a soggy, acidic, bog environment. To keep your carnivorous plants happy year-round, make them a simulated bog environment! You can follow the steps in this Instructable to make a copy of the bog garden shown, or adapt the same techniques to whip up your own to suit your own containers and windowsill. Let’s get started! Carnivorous Plants Most nurseries and garden shops carry carnivorous plants packaged in small plastic terrariums (terraria?) to keep them moist. If you can’t find any carnivorous plants for sale near you, try searching online for a supplier that will sell them by mail. Here are some bog-loving carnivorous plants that you can grow in an indoor bog: – Venus fly traps (Dionea muscipula) – Pitcher plants (from the genus Sarracenia, Nepenthes, or others) – Sundews (from the genus Drosera) – Butterworts (Pinguicula vulgaris. I’ve never had any success with these, myself) Additional Resources For more information about carnivorous plants, try: – The book “The Savage Garden,” by Peter D’Amato – The United States Botanic Garden’s website devoted to carnivorous plants – The North Carolina Botanical Garden’s website Full instructions: http://www.instructables.com/id/Bog-Garden-For-Carnivorous-Plants/ Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsALUM IN GARDENING – Benefits or Uses of Alum on Plants and Garden – Aluminum Soil AmendmentBeautiful House Plants Picture Gallery For Your Office Home Or Garden | Indoor Wall HangingHouse Plant Indoor Wall Hanging S | Picture Set Of House Office Or Garden Decor Plants RomanceWhat Is Transplanting Of Plants?Gardening Indoors!
