Beware of Birds...

by JoyFunWow » Sun May 10, 2015 12:49 am

Found out the hard way today that birds in the spring like LFSM to make their nests! Put my VFTs outside today to get some bright sun and came back to them pecked apart. Luckily only lost a couple of one year old seedlings... GRRR!

I've lost a few plants to the birds. They seem to like young Darlingtonia and Sarracenia too :lol:

Ugg... found out that too in my vft bog.... i quickly had to throw a cover of chicken wire on top. I added a bunch of moss sprigs from my other bogs to help "stitch" the media together more. The birds don't mess with the older bogs.
