    Dude (or chick),
    You do this kind of thing FIRST (1) then buy the plants man. I would honestly love to help ya man, but Google, Google, GOOGLE. Gotta help yourself first.
    BTW, some people get really irritated when you just want them to tell you when they personally spent many a night reading, and reading, and reading. Getting in trouble with the spouse for bein up late and not paying enough attention because your researching a plant you want. (Happens frequently to me)

    Sorry man, now its your turn. Maybe someone will give you an answer.

    Did you buy them at PFT?

    i think you mean U. Livida, lol those all seem pretty easy, you could probably get away with pure peat for soil, not tons of light, but lots of it, here is the info:
    U. livida- practically a weed, jeremy has it growing in his water trays at his greenhouse! likes it b=very wet,and pure peat would prolly work, although sand would help
    S. flava x purpurea- very common sarracenia hybrid, although still very beautifull, lots of light, pure peat should work, very easy to grow
    U. sandersonii- yet another weed utric, cool bunny shaped flowers, practically the same as U. livida
    S. flava- very hardy sarracenia, also very beautiful flowers alot, very easy peat/perlite/sand mixture would prolly be best however pure peat would also work once more, pitchers can get to 3' when full grown
    D. burmanii- very easy drosera, possibly the easiest, excluding capensis and splathulata flowers often and doesnt get very big peat/sand mix would be best, my ssundews dont like direct sunlight, but alot of growers' sundews do
    D. ericksonia x pulchella (sp?)- ask steve, BigCarnivoreKid
    common names:
    U. livida- ?
    S. flava x purp- S. catersbaei (sp?)
    U. sandersonii
    S. flava -yellow pitcher plant
    D. burmanii - ?
    D. ericksonia x pulchella (sp?)- ?
    sorry not much of a help on the names, all the info is based on my plant experiences

    U. livida likes peat or peat and sand.

    U. sandersonii (the angry bunny rabbit flowered bladderwort [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ) will grow in/on most any CP mix, i have it in peat/sand and LFS, it doesnt really care what its in.

    all the Drosera, a peat sand mix will work

    Sarrs plant in peat or peat and sand

    I do see where Joe is coming from, but I'm happy z5guy didn't order an N. rajah and then ask how to care for it! I'm sure you will have pot fulls of plants in a few weeks time z5guy!
