    I really don't like Darlingtonia for some reason. I think they just look too goofy

    I also hate poison ivy, oak, sumac. I got a real bad case of something on my arm when I made the trip to triangle lake bog in Kent Ohio. Although the trip was awesome, the huge, pussing rash on my arm that lasted for 3 weeks was not pleasant. Especially once it traveled to my fingers and face, which consequently showed up on my first day of work at a new office job. Makes you look a little unprofessional, having to explain the poison ivy rash on your face on day 1. Yuk!

    I dislike many of the Sarracenia and Nepenthes hybrids because the hybrids all look alike and if you buy from a seller who doesn't know the heritage, you're screwed.

    Kind of like Pinguicula "John Rizzi". Yes, it looks pretty, but we will never know the ancestry of the hybrid, which makes it confusing as hell.

    I love them all. That's why I grow them.

    I find the various utricularia and pinguicula species very annoying: In many cases the leaves of different species look identical to others, and you can only know what they are when they flower...

    However the flowers totally make up for it

    Poison ivy is rough - I certainly wouldn't grow it in my garden.
    I think defensive poison is the funniest adaptation ever, though. The original punk'd. ("Oh yeah, want to chew on me? Enjoy your itchy mouth and painful diarrhea.")
