    Neps usually....but depending on my mood, sometimes sars, and even drosophyllum (rarely, though, because the fact I can't grow them to save my life is a real downer).

    Cephalotus is certainly high on the charts (particularly those I've raised either from seed or cuttings), so too ultra-highland Nepenthes (villosa, macrophylla, hamata, etc.) and Heliamphora. While I generally like Sarracenia, I prefer perennials and not species which reduce to phylodia and /or next to nothing while in dormancy. I prefer to see something in a pot year-round for my efforts.

    The favourites also fluctuate with the course of the year, as new leaves develop and cuttings -- hopefully -- become small plants . . .

    I agree. One reason why I love Cephalotus is that it's a compact pitcher plant that grows year round. Nepenthes are nice, but they get too large and eventually outgrow their space.

    A sarracenia purpurea would be nice if they grew year round, but unfortunately they have a dormany period. Same with the Venus Fly Trap



    Seriously, if someone could adapt a variety of Venus Fly Trap to grow year round, that would be a hot seller. In addition to "dente", "all green", "all red", etc, how cool would it be if there was a "grows year round" Venus Fly Trap?

    I thought they did go dormant, but are evergreens o_o. *Must be going crazy *

    Edit: Oh wait...I think it's either that, or it just slows or stops during Winter.
