    Any plant that you can grow easy. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    Some plants are weeds for some growers and very hard to grow for others.
    U.gibba is a so called weed but I can't grow it.

    I've had U. subulata, U. calcyfida, D. nidiformis, D. capensis, D. burmanii, D. binata and D. hartmeyeron all pop up in my pots unexpectedly. I'm very lazy about removing flower scapes.

    N. x ventrata is the weed of nepenthes!!! I have 10 foot long vines taking over my grow room.

    U. lateriflora can become a weed, i have yet to let mine develop seed pods. actually several different Utrics spread quite quickly either through seed or in a large tray though their runners. some of the more vigourus pygmy Drosera can take over from their gemmea going everywhere. but like Ozzy said most anything you can grow REALLY well has "weed" potential.

    I agree that any plant that is easy to grow and shows up in unexpected places can be considered to be a weed. But, for a weed to be considered to be a pest, I would add another criteria: It is difficult to identify and/or eradicate. By this criteria:

    U. subulata is easy to identify, but difficult to eradicate. (PEST)

    Many of the D. spatulata look-a-likes are somewhat difficult to identify, and easy to eradicate. (maybe PEST)

    Finally, D. capensis is easy to identify, and easy to eradicate. (not a PEST)
