    Just asking for future references but is there any place here in BC that has houses near or on bog properties eg; bog just at the back of a house but still has a yard? I would like to find some property someday that has this and plant some of my CP plants in it.

    I am getting some temperate D.capillaris seed and was told they don't need cold strat but if I did cold stratify them would this hurt them? Or would it increase germination rates?

    My Project.

    My project. When it comes to dormancy I can put the plants underneath the table and in the spring/summer can out them on top. I do have a question though.

    Australian Sundews Species in BC.

    Does anyone know what Australian Sundews could survive outside in lower mainland British Columbia weather if left outside all year? It rarely dips below freezing here. I've heard of Helis surviving in a bog outside all year here and they are from a hot humid climate.
