    Hi Justin

    Welcome to the forums! You've come to the right place. Here, everybody helps everybody from newb to expert.

    As mentioned, Nepenthes ventricosa is an easy one. I had one for a number of years in a tank in my office at work.

    There are many Drosera that are easy...D. capensis, D. adelae, D. spatulata, D. burmannii.

    None of these plants require a terrarium and if you go that route, just make sure you get some air circulation in the tank to prevent mold. I have a number of plants in tanks but they are potted for easier maintenance.

    VFTs are coming out of dormancy now but if you buy from a place, such as FlyTrapShop, you will get tissue-cultured plants that do not require dormancy until the next season.

    Stick around and you'll be addicted in no time.

    Welcome to TF! I remember when I first started CPs.. There are some easy plants and some hard ones. N. sanguinea is a very easy and beautiful nepenthes. It grows fast, and can easily be grown inside under artificial lights. Easy drosera I've had are D. capensis and D. adelae, but there are some others. Venus fly traps should be active and growing by now in most places.
    The following statement is true.
