How many inches below the surface of the substrate would be a decent height to put drainage holes for a mini-bog?
It's a large rubbermaid container, maybe 18x36 inches, 20 inches tall, and the substrate is 16-18 inches deep. It contains Sarrs and drosera. Would 4 inches below the surface of the substrate be enough? More?

For my bog I was going to use some plastic drums from work, cut the bottoms off, clean them out really good and try that. It will be my first attempt at a bog and I still have to find some plants to put in it. I have a ton of peat already. Just need some time to do everything for it.

I used and old pool liner. The price was right....free.... and it works perfect! I turned it so that the side that was in the pool was on the outside just in case but so far so good. Talk to any pool company and I am sure they would be happy to give you a used liner or at least parts of one since they usually cut them out. Ask for a good size section and tell em what you are gonna do with it. If they don't have to haul it out they its easier for them to just give it to you!!!!!
