    Kayota, please indicate which state/country you are living in. It helps the growers here to advise you accordingly.

    I'll dive in anyways. Most likely the plant(s) would go on a window sill, so that would minimize the need for residence.

    Having said that, I would recommend a Mexican butterwort. almost any would do well for ya. I would stay away from P. gypsicola, lauenea, and jaumviensis for a beginner plant. Typically easy ones are: moranensis, ehleresiae, sethos, weser, esseriana,...

    Cindy - I don't want to or intend to undermine you!

    Im really new to pings but my P. primuliflora is pretty easy....it sits in my east windowsill and get some morning sun and then indirect sun later in the day and then I make sure its watered and its a happy camper so far!
