The petrified rocks are knock down drag out gorgeous used around your bog.

Wow. Thanks for the pictures! I am envious- but happy- for you. I live in Colorado (eastern plains) where it is far too dry to have any success with a Venus Flytrap. I have been fascinated by them since I was a child.

deerhunter, I'd give it a try! I was told by many here that I couldn't do it. But I did. It's still early to find out the real results, but so far I'm on cloud nine.
Equil, yes aren't I a lucky one to have the petrified wood! I was able to get a little bit more, the guy still has some, but he doesn't want to let any more go. So I'm very pleased with what I have. Actually I'm just as excited about my 'rocks' as the plants surviving, well darn near anyway.
I'm going to start thinking about what else to put in the bog.

deerhunter> you could do it in Colorado Springs. Your odds of being successful would be better than hers.
