    Thumbs up

    Hi Guys!
    Looking for some hlp for you. I'm making another order for CPs, but I've corrupted some of my friends in the mean time! Now they want some too! *applause*

    I told them that if they wanted an easy start, to do so with Droseras, as I believe they are rather tolerant plants compared to the others. But what about those who want something different?

    So could you place them in order, from the easiest to hardest?
    Kinda like this :
    1 Drosera
    2 Sarracenia
    3 Utricularia and others
    4 Butterwort
    5 Dionaea
    6 Nepenthes
    or whatever the actual order.

    Please?

    You wrote neps twice kirk? lol

    1 Drosera
    2 Sarracenia
    3 Dionaea
    4 Utrics
    5 Pings
    6 Nepenthes

    Of course there are many exceptions, i tried to make a generalization but in some cases you could have drosera be the hardest, and utrics be indestructable. a nep could be either 1-6. Catch my drift?
    maybe you could get em a d. capensis and let em poke it all day, but if they are willing to go through with dormancy get em a typical vft. I think it depends on your friends [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    (1 being hardest)
    1. dionaea
    2. sarracenia
    3. drosera
    4. nepenthes
    5. pinguicula (mexican, the temperate ones are sometimes difficult for me)
    6. utric / not very hard for tropicals, but for me temperates don't do well.. and don't let duckweed cover your aquatic tanks. thats a pain in the ***.

    Amateur is right, One Nep could be called easiest while another could easily be THE hardest. Sarrs and Flytraps are dang near identical in requirement.

    Erm, okay. So which nep and ultrics are "indestructible", as you say? (taking note, I'm pretty destructive as well.)

    From one being the hardest-
    1- Dionaea
    2- Ping
    3- Drosera
    4- Nepenthes
    5- Utics

    I don't know if it is just me, but I haven't had the best sucess with Pings.
    Also, I don't believe there are any real Cp specie that is harder then the other, it is mainly more on what type of Cp subspecie you have a choice to grow.
    Like say what is easier? U. Livida, D. Capensis, N. Ventrata.... they are all on the same level but the thing that makes them easier for one and not the next is their growing conditions around their house.
    So if a person has to grow a plant indoors with limited light, then a Nepenthes, or several types of low light Drosera's will grow great.
    But, if outdoor plants are your choice due to limitations of space or light then Sarracenia's, or Some Drosera's like Capensis will grow like a weed.

    But the easiest of all I would have to say is U. Livida. It grows in low/high light. The only drawback is it's lack of excitment since all you really see are leaves and no real trapping mechnism.
    I thought you people where \"Plant Geeks\", Look at me Now...

    N. ventricosa is the easiest Nep. and U. sandersonii is the easiest Utric. They must be because I haven't killed any of them - yet.
    Un)Dionaea
    Deux)Utricularia
    Trois)Drosera
    Quatre)Sarracenia
    Cinque)Pinguicula
    Six)Nepenthes
    Sept)Darlingtonia
