A bog garden is treated the same as a potted flytrap, it's just bigger.

By fall they seemed to be healthy enough to survive substrate change & repotting, neither trap seemed to go fully dormant. They didn't grow much this winter but they didn't fully die back either. Each plant kept several green traps and caught quite a few small bugs over the months.
Over the last few weeks they've all but exploded. It was quite amazing actually, both plants started growing flower buds on the same day.
They've almost doubled the number of traps they had just a month ago, the traps are easily three times the size they had before, and both have grown rhizomes & started new plants.
