    I have a sunless north facing window(any light is blocked by a highrise)... There is light but any direct sunlight is blocked. Any suggestions as to carnivores that would survive here.

    D. adelae is the one that pops into my mind. Also, D.schizandra might do well, IF you can find somebody that grows it. You could always grow alot more cp under artificail light, though.

    I didn't really want to use artificial...
    I've had good luck with my Darlingtonia in this spot just looking for a few additions.

    I'm not sure about CPs, but you could try an orchid. My phaleonopsis love their shady northern window.

    I agree with Dewy, my D. adelae are sitting out of the way from the growlights and they thrive there.

    The only carnivore that thrives in my sunless windows is the occasional spider. But I'm not allowed to let them stay there.
