I resurrected my bubble bucket and made a mini bog for my purp seedlings...what gave me the idea is last winter I was to lazy to separate these little guys so I left them in a glass of water ALL winter. Well I was sure that they would have rotted but no sure enough they were all growing with lots of roots to untangle. So I moved them into this contraption and as you can see I think they like it. . :D Thanks for looking.

Nice idea, but they will out grow the bucket quickly. I would transplant them next spring into long run media, and in seperate pots. You can set up a water table if you want.

Those are looking nice how long will they be able to stay in there before needing transplanted?

Nice! They seem to be loving it that's for sure. When transplanting them you could leave a couple in there right? I think it is a cool looking little bog.
