    I don't do very well with pings, but I don't DISLIKE them. I just don't seem to do very well with them. It's hard for me to pick something which I dislike, since I generally find that everything has some kind of likeable characteristic. If I had to pick something that wasn't TOO interesting, I'd have to pick S. alata and rubras. Just not as interesting as some of the other sarras. By sheer volume and commoness, I find D. capensis to be a little boring and finally... In as beautiful as the flowers are, most utricularia just don't have much to show when not in flower.

    I'm not a fan of all the vft cultivars out there (dentate traps cultivar group is a big one) yet I grow a few just because I can , utricularia that just don't flower, and a few of the Petiolaris-Complex sundews (certainly not Paradoxa, I think that one looks great) because most of them look the same, are too hairy and have almost non-existent traps. Also the D. falconeri that look like a really messed-up VFT.

    Queensland sundews (prolifera, adelae, schizandra) have a pretty ugly leaf shape IMO, and for all the effort put into giving them huge amounts of humidity and everything else, they don't give much back. Flat and wide leaves that dry up if given a slight change in humidity are not my thing :P

    S. alata is one sarr I don't really like, it looks boring. However the black form is ok

    I think pings are boring. There, I said it.

    alright, I have changed my mind... I think the only CP I actually don't like is drosera kenneallyi. I don't dislike any others, but I'm not a huge fan of pings, S. alata and genlisea. I'm also not a huge fan of dionaea dentata and most of the green forms.

    I would agree that butterworts & bladderworts are pretty boring, when looking only at leaves. But their flowers make up for it.

    I don't mind flowerless bladderworts (I like tiny carpeting plants) I just wish they could outgrow the pest moss.

    I don't like D. spatulata from Austrailia, VFTs that stay rosetted all year long, and I am not a big fan of pygmy sundews. I don't like forms of D. capensis that don't readily curl their leaves.
