Since you guys been hounding me for an update on my floating bog project ;)

I got the idea when I got a Sarracenia psittacina and I was researching how it grows in the wild. They grow in the very wet sometimes even partially submerged. Sarracenia purpurea can also grow in very wet conditions.

A photo from the internet of Sarracenia psittacina liking the wet.

My pond doesn't have the correct depths for that so I decided mine should float and this is what happened.

Then the frogs moved in and trashed the place.
