    Well yeah but I didn't know if Tara wanted a hybrid or not so i suggested a species, but yes Ventrata is a windowsill plant, and it is bomb proof like Ventricosa! lol Also would be a good choice is Khasiana.

    LoL! You guys are confusing me! Hehe...I'm getting some sundews pretty soon from someone here, and then I'll probably order the rest of the plants off of this site...are all of the plants you suggested on here?? I also don't mind hybrids...I just want nice looking, easy to care for plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Thanks for all the suggestions guys! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] You all have been awesome! Keep it comin! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    OK then he's my list to you of good first time CP's for the terrarium:

    Sundews:

    D.Adelae
    D.Spathulata
    D.Capensis any forms

    Sarracenia are not suitable

    Nepenthes:

    N.Gracilis
    N.Ventricosa
    N.Sanguinea
    N.Ventrata (do well in your house in no terrarium)
    N.Alata
    N.Khasiana (same as Ventrata)

    All other CP's will do reasonably well too.

    Probably, intermedia are very hardy sundews and can survive a number of conditions.
