Your bog is looking good Jim. Ours looks like soil because we added sand and perlite. Long fibered sphagnum moss will work. Peat moss is LFSM that has broken down. Milled moss is cut up Long Fibered Sphagnum moss. The sand just provides stability and allows the plants to anchor. The perlite keeps it loose.
People generally use the mix because long fibered SP will eventually turn green and begin to grow. This makes your Bog look wonderfully carpeted and people like it. However when you plant sundews the moss can over whelm them if it's not kept trimmed.
You can take some Long Fibered SM like you have, cut it up, mix some garden sand, or playbox sand in it and add that to the area you want to plant the sundews in. This will give them a little elevation and you'll be able to see them better and when your bog is wonderfully green you can trim the moss down around them if necessary.

Well, You know Charley is a male and like some men, he may change his mind about what hat he wears.
But we must remember He is a mule of importance. He has a fan club in Australia and now even in Britan. How neat is that??
Our Charley is a much loved mule.
Drats! It's not raining today So I will have to put up fence today and go shopping for my CP's tomorrow. I was so hoping to get them today. All we've had for the last 4 days is rain, and everything is so water logged now and I was hoping for more rain
Sherri, I read that link you provided and other links attached to it, seems that now I have to make sure beavers don't get in my bog to live , I keep sniffing my bog to make sure it's ok, I'm right beside a busy hi-way, you should have seen the looks I got from backed up traffic wondering what the heck that guy was doing down on his knees with his nose to the ground! I yelled at one driver that I was hunting rabbits
