    Hi, welcome to TF! Good starters are Sarracenias, Drosera capensis, and Nepenthes ventricosa and sanguinea, which are all in Flytrapshop. Andy ships really good plants!

    I appreciate all the help guys! Glad I can grow them on my balcony. This should survive the winter as well right? I think I will start with a sundew, as everywhere I have looked says they are good starter plants.

    Sundews are good. If you go with Drosera capensis, make sure to protect it from frost. It should be OK most days where you are, but I'd say you should bring it in when expecting a cold snap - just to be safe. If you're interested in Nepenthes, you should check this site out; it's right up your alley:

    Halt, you should take a look at this one, too. This guy is pretty amazing - he grows Neps outside unsheltered in the Los Angeles area. I've learned a ton from his site. Basically, you can grow N. ventricosa outside in your weather, but it's best to let it get to adult size, as the mature ones are much sturdier than babies.

    Welcome to TF!

    The UC Davis Botanical Conservatory successfully grows Flytraps, Sarracenia, Roridula, Drosophyllum, tuberous Drosera, and temperate Pinguicula outdoors; I think you would also have great success growing those outdoors. Drosera capensis should grow like a weed outdoors in Davis.

    As for Nepenthes, Tropical Drosera, Mexican Pinguicula, and etc. you should be able to cultivate them on a windowsill fairly easily.

    Halt: there are cold snaps in California, he lives in NorCal BTW... not very close to Walnut.

    Thanks for all the info! I live in davis for 8 months for school, and then 4 months in the bay area about 20 mins away from walnut creek. I'll buy the plants tomorrow, that way they get here in a good time for me, and my breaks.
