    Maybe I'm just weird, but I think the toilet bowl neps look cooler than the ones with skinny pitchers. I guess it's because they look like they should be catching things like birds and rodents rather than puny little insects. Probably the same reason why I really like Sarracenia 'Leah Wilkerson' - that thing looks like it should be catching hummingbirds.

    If I had to grow only one carnivorous plant, I would grow Cephalotus. It's compact so you can fit it about anywhere (unlike a Nepenthes or Sarracenia), is tolerant of a wide range of conditions, is a pitcher plant (pitcher plants are my personal favorite), and most importantly: it looks carnivorous. Unlike a Pinguicula or Heliamphora, a Cephalotus looks like a carnivorous plant from an alien world.

    If you had to name your plants, Audrey Junior would be the perfect name for a Cephalotus.

    Nepenthes, Droseras and Cephalotus for me all the way! I mostly prefer all the nepenthes, but sometimes I just dislike the fact that some species/hybrids look almost the same in general. It's a pain in the

    As for drosera, red is my obsession

    And as for cephs, I like all the forms though I do think they are rather boring at a small age

    Well, Heliamphora sp. Akopan (what did it get renamed to?) would be the only Heli I'd grow because I love Nepenthes campanulata. The toothy ones are a nice novelty to me.. but at the end of the day nothing beats a well grown jacquelinae Nep hamiguitanensis is a new obsession this year for me to and I hope mine turns out well! As for other genuses...

    I do love me a well-grown Cephalotus but mine keep catching mealies so that may be soon changing haha, but I'm really getting into petiolaris dews at the moment. I would love to have a derbyensis or broomensis one of these days, and Pinguicula kondoi just has the nicest blooms!

    And I guess when I see a well grown vft or cobra I go all but I know I wouldn't actually grow them that well so I abstain..
