    there are CP's that arent supposed to sit in water all the time. however 99% of Drosera, VFT's, Sarrs, most pings and about 90% of Utrics sit in water constantly. basically unless you find a Nep everything you find at a big box store will sit in water constantly with no problems. its only when yah start trading with CP nuts or buy from CP nurseries that you have to start paying a bit of attention.

    you prolly want to pick up a copy of The Savage Garden, it usually runs about $20 or your local library might even have it. its an excellent guideline for growing CP's though if you read these forums ou will quickly find its not the final word in growing CP's and some of us grow ours in ways that are almost opposite of what it says but its definatly a good place to start

    The pics are a bit blurry, but I would say that your Drosera looks like D. nidiformis. Possibly a hybrid of D. nidiformis and D. intermedia. You will need one of the more expert members (and prolly a better pic) for this one. I just am not sure.

    Just wanted to say welcome to Terraforums. You're getting enough good advice. I can't tell the difference between D. nidiformis and D. anglica, but I grow both on window sills. Here's and old pic of D. anglica, which is either what you have or similar to it. It's the one on the right. The one on the left is D.intermedia, which an easy plant to grow, either inside or outside.

    I bought it from a local nursery called Sids, which is actually where i'll be headed in about 10 minutes over here. I'm going to pick up some different pots, moss, perlite, and maybe a pitcher plant (not sure what type they have, i'll take pictures if I pick it up.)

    Heres a photo tip... It appears that you are using a webcam or a similar low-res camera for your pics.. if you have a small hand held magnifying glass, use that between your camera and your subject and you will get a nice closeup of your subject. It works.. try it..
