    I don't hate any CPs, but there are some genera that I really have no desire to grow:

    Nepenthes - Sorry, but any plant that needs to be pampered just to survive doesn't interest me at all. They look cool though.

    Utricularia - As mentioned previously by Sig, no visible carnivory.

    Genlisea - See Utricularia.

    Heliamphora - Falls into the Nepenthes category... Cool looking but doesn't tolerate high temperatures and low humidity (hence would require pampering).

    Pygmy Drosera - These are just really boring to me. I don't know why.

    Pinguicula - I do think these are cool, but not cool enough for me to actually buy one. I like looking at them at nurseries though. I could see myself maybe growing P. macroceras at some point because it's a California native.

    I think that's about it. I guess I just like the CPs that can grow outside on my deck year-round with little care (Sarracenia, Dionaea, Darlingtonia, Drosophyllum, some Drosera).

    I think that was a waste of space. When a lot of people comment on something it adds up. Everything they said contributed by acknowledging previous posts (I don't see 10 smilies). Oh yeah, I also forgot that this was in the General Discussions section. Seems pretty general to me.

    Hm, dare I say it, but I would have to say Heliamphora.
    Now if you'll excuse me I need to go dig my grave.

    No way, Eric. It's all about personal preference. Hate what you will! Remember, this is a "forum," which means an exchange of ideas. No one is wrong in the subjective realm.

    Guys, I just removed a whole bunch of posts. Among other things, please remember that this is an all-ages forum and to keep the conversation G-rated.

    I've never hated any CP's, but I usually don't like I CP when I can't grow it well. But I admit, I'm not a huge fan of Genlisea and utrics. I mostly like them for their flowers, but they're almost pointless to grow if you want to see the carnivores they are. :P Unless the traps are poking out of the bottom of the pots...

    That's just my opinion.
