    I'd say, try a few tropical terrestrial Utrics. - U. calycifida comes to mind, even though I grow it in high light. The Queensland Sisters, for Drosera. I think there are one or two Neps, but someone else will have to give advice on that one. You can pretty much forget anything native to North America, except, maybe U. subulata, but, I'm not sure on that.

    Glad to see I'm not the only CPer that plays DOTA 2. Although I probably am the only CPer that plays DOTA2 and is over 30. :-/

    I was hoping someone else played here


    Anyway, my current options seem to be utrics, some easy dews, maybe 1 genlisea, and a few butterworts...

    Just for an example here is a Ceph that was grown up from a leaf pull on a low light windowsill. Not the best looking Ceph on the forums but its clearly growing.

    Another option if you have extra $$, and you don't mind lighting up your window for the world to see. It would be easy enough to reproduce without mounting anything to the walls.

    Sorry about ditching again!
    College got pretty intense before Spring Break.
    I'll try and get another window and check if I'm really facing the North.
    I'll probably get tank with lights or something.

    Anyway, I have $150 saved up that I'm willing to spend on building my own setup.

    This is what I have so far:
    Low-light windowsill
    Sand,Perlite,Peat
    Several random Drosera seeds
    2-3+ years of experience
    A ton of time
    Monies


    What I want:
    Plants that can be grown in the same media/terrarium

    What I'm looking for:

    Cuttings of Pings
    Genlisea
    Utric seeds


    What I can offer:
    Random Drosera seeds
    An awesome IOU
    SASE?

    You can't offer to buy on this forum, fyi, only trade. Just wanted you to know before the mods see this and yell at you.

    I know that D:

    Sorry if I wasn't clear.

    I have 150 I'm willing to spend for building my own setup.
    For now I'm just looking for even more suggestions of plants or tanks I should look into.

    Just for your information, Utricularia seed is pretty rare and loses viability quickly. I've tried germinating it in the past and nothing sprouted, so if you get seed you should make sure it hasn't been too long since they were harvested.
