    Well, I'm no expert, but some easy plants are D. Capensis, S. Purpurea, N. Ventricosa and of course you need to have a VFT in your collection.

    As to your terrerium, that depends on how big you want your collection to be. Most people have a 20gal or 30 gal terrerium. You will probably need an artifitial light source. Swords wrote an article if you click here

    good luck!

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] O.K., here's my 2 cents. I bought my first VFT from a hardware store about 10 months ago. At the time I didsn't know a thing about cp's but with a little research and lot's of questions answered here that little plant is still growing and hungry. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I've added 11 more plants from pitchers to pings to a variety of sundews. Might I add that I've kept them alive on my windowsill under two 60 watt growing lights. I guess the most Important thing I've learned is that watering with distilled or rain water ONLY is key. Also every plant I have is planted in just sphagmum moss. I want to upgrade to a better greenhouse soon but for now lots of attention and crickets is sufficient. So I guess any plant you get is a good starter as long as you pay attention to it's needs. GOOD LUCK!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
