Doris I found that at walmart for 5$ and yep they absord through the terracotta. The Pings like to be moist but not sitting in water so they say water like you would houseplants however if they get dry that triggers their dormancy soooo this ensures you dont forget to water lol

Look at the tiny flytrap in one of these pots.....hehe! I must have planted it there though, must have had a little rhizome and chucked it in the same pot. The 2 pots at the bottom have flytraps that don't go red in the sun but the others do.
Ridesredmule- I think theres to much water in your bog. Hope i don't sound rude. Sarracenias can grow in water but they can rot from to much also, esp. in winter. How have they been going?
Misti- I also have some ping.s in terracotta pots sitting in trays of gravel and water on the floor of my orchid greenhouse. The pot just soaks up the water, i do tip out the water every now and then if i think there too wet for too long and top back up next time i water my orchids.

No. See some have sphagnum moss growing it the pots, its innoying. I don't usually use it with the flytraps it outgrows them. I use peat moss, sand and perlite. I don't sit them in water, if you do don't add the perlite because it floats. I use this mix for my sundews and sarracenias also. I add sphag. moss to this mix for my nepenthes or they dry out to quick (in there hanging pots).

Sounds like mealy bugs. Common pest and can kill your plants eventually. Here's a pic http://www.reedsgreenhouse.com/mealie-bugs.jpg

When I went on the ICPS they said they used alcohol swabs to dab them with. Too hard and tedious on sundews.

Or Orthene. I haven't used this but if I had an infestation I would try it on one or two. I bought a sundew that came with it's own little colony. I used tweezers and a strong magnifying glass over the course of two months to get rid of them. Kept the plant separate from the others and it worked ok. I check mine regularly for them since they are a major pest. It would be impossible to see them on the wooleys since they have that white hair on the pads.

I dont think thats these. these are so skinny and small you almost dont see them and they are in the moss and peat not on the plants that I can see.

That's good. I think thrip can be a pest but they move fast and you'd see them on the plant. You would see the mealy bugs in the soil but also under the pads and in the crown. Maybe just some gnat. Food! Thumbs up

mb gnats I would try to get a pic of them lol but I dont think they would show up. You have to use a non copper based insecticide i believe they say Pyrethrin is best but didnt wanna use it if I didnt have to. I will keep an eye on it I think its just part of the bog life. Blinking lol

They will probably be o.k. Try not to worry, dear girl.
I would be worrying too, I'm sure. I really do enjoy these bogs.
