    I'm looking for some nice, small carnivorous plants... say, like no bigger than 6 inches across or tall... Can you guys recommend some for me? I like the way sundews look, especially the ones with the rounder leaves, but I'm not really that picky about the type of plant.

    The first choice I would go with is Nepenthes. 6 inches is really big for a sundew depending on what kind of sundew you are talking about.

    But a Nep can grow way past that 6" limit. Check the Drosera (sundew) and Ping forums because there are some great options there. And venus flytraps too.

    Not to mention terrestrial utrics which usually only reach 0.5 cm in height!

    sundews would be my first suggestion. capensis is a really good one. my personal favorite is the Hong Kong locale of spatulata, madigascarensis is extreamly interesting and easy also, doesnt grow like most others, forms a mini tree bout 4 or 5 inches tall, not to easy to find plants of it but it starts easy from seed which is a bit easier to get your hands on.

    if you prefer flowers to foliage the Mexi pings, especially hybrids and Utrics such as sandersonii and the calycifida cultivars are also highly recommended.
