    Smile New to the forum

    Hi there everyone. Just saying hello and letting you know I am new to carnivorous plants. I have six already and trying to get more. This is a new hobby for me as I already have regular houseplants also. Getting into carnivours plants can be addictive I see. I find that I like the utrics. I have four already ( (2 subulatas), livida, sandersonii and (2) gibbas) I also have capensis 'alba', pinguicula moranensis. These are all growing so beautifully). I have also won an D adelae from the auction. Can't wait to have this one added to my little collection. Can anyone offer any advice on which ones are easiest for me to grow? I would like any input I can get.:-:-

    lol. That's an understatement! Just wait a little while... As for the easiest, it seems like you are on the right track. D. capensis and D. adalae are bomb proof so you got a nice find in the auction for a start with the Drosera.

    If you are looking into some Nepenthes then you should try out N. ventrata, N. sanguinea, or any vigorous hybrids.

    Do you grow on a window sill? Outside? If you grow outside then most any Sarrs will grow easily.

    Anyways, welcome to the forum, Ori!

    I am growing the capenisis 'alba', u. livida and u. subulata on the window sill. The u. gibba and u. sandersonii and ping are growing under lights on a table. I also have 1 u. subulata growing in a ten gallon tank setup like in "The Savage Garden" book along with a Genlisea (I forgot I had this in my collection). These are doing just fine also. The u. subulata has sent out new growth lately. I can see that it spreads like a weed also.

    Welcome to the forum. Under lights, I would think most pings and tropical drosera should be easy. I don't have a light setup, so I am just guessing from what others have posted here.
