It depends on the species we are talking about. Different CPs like different bog types:) You'll have to check out where do the species you're interested in grow. Some CP's grow on trees, rocks, mosses, inside other plants, in water, or not in bogs at all:)

There are also different types of peat as well. Over where I am there are a lot of wetland. Most of it is peat from wild grasses. I have only seen bladderworts live in these types of wet land but they thrive. There is also the sphagnum bogs with the live sphagnum moss above the ancient lake underneath.

The other one is a Raised Bog. If i visit them again I takes some pictures to show you. There are Utricularia cornuta and Utricularia macrorhiza that make there home there. Almost all year round they flower... But I wont be able to get any pictures until spring :(

In the northern USA, the CPs tend to be in sphagnum bogs (not always true but not a horrible generalization). In the NJ Pine Barrens, they grow almost anywhere around water or where subsurface water is close to the surface (see elgecko trip reports on ICPS forum for many pics). In the south, a lot of Sarrs grow in water seeps and around lakes & streams.

As Moof noted, many CPs don't need a 'bog' at all. They tend to occupy niches where carnivory gives them a competitive advantage (usually in nutrient poor spaces).
