    Welcome to the forums, Milky.
    I understand your concerns, but why choose Terra Forums to get ideas? We appreciate you doing so, but you must realise we're CP nerds! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
    All the species mentioned are easy to find and care for, if not interesting! One could say they tend to kill plants, but what plants in specifc? You'll never know until you try a variety of them, like myself. I can't keep a cactus for the life of me!
    Good luck on your search, and take advantage of this wonderful learning opportunity with CP!

    Milky, sounds like you need some Pings and Utrics. no movement from their trapping devises that you can see and thy have excellent flowers. what you need to find is U. sandersonii it produces masses of lil blooms. i would send yah some but its a lil cold to ship from way up here maybe someone closer to you has some they could spare. here is a pic of mine in mass bloom. it stays small and is simple to care for and to get to flower.

    no yah dont nessesarily have to. i have never actually fed my Utrics although i willing to bet there are micro critters living in the peat they are planted in that they are munching on. i dont actually feed any of mine. most do quite well on their own. my Drosera capensis's are quite accomplished fly catchers as is my Nepenthes ampullaria. my Pings usually have an assortment of flying gnats and such on their leaves. some of my sundews dont seem to ever catch anything but they look, and are growing just fine. if you dont want to catch bugs yah dont have too if thats what your getting at. Utrics especially do just fine with no help from yopu other than keeping them wet.

    for soil i would use a peat and sand mix, you can grow a decent variety in that. as to depth, not sure, i grow all mine in pots. someone else is going to need to chime in but i would think 3-4 inches would work well.

    Hi Milky! I've got an idea for a low maintenance CP that is sessile, remains small, difficult to kill, easy to procure, and will flower for you in the summer: Drosera spatulata. When I get home I can post a picture for you - assuming someone else doesn't do it first.
