    If you could grow only one carnivorous plant, what would it be?

    Let's say due to money constraints or whatever, you could only grow one carnivorous plant. What would it be and why?


    Personally, I would only have Cephalotus (which is currently what I'm doing now because I'm planning to move soon). It looks like Audrey Junior from Little Shop of Horrors, it's relatively easy to grow (once you get the hang of it), and it stays relatively compact so you don't have to worry about it outgrowing it's space unlike a Nepenthes or something.

    Sarracenia 'Adrian Slack' as a huge, expansive clonal colony that went on for miles and was 5 million years old

    Either a large Nepenthes inermis with tons of uppers, or (more likely) Genlisea uncinata, grown with traps extending into a water-filled display case.

    I think maybe D. scorpioides or an N. bongso var robusta. They're both so pretty

    that is a tough one......I think I would go with a colony of Reptilian Rose based on where I live....if I lived in a more nep friendly environment perhaps a gigantor red x orange bical.
