    I've killed every cp I ever got barerooted. Am trying to find a way to get started in this wonderful hobby again.

    I looked at the auctions but it looks like I would have to pay shipping for each plant I "won" Too bad no one is offering a "beginner's collection"

    The plants will be sitting in a screen covered aquarium (screen protects them from two hungry birds that view my unprotected houseplants as their meal bar).

    As long as they get bright indirect light and rain or distilled water they will do just fine!

    Make a wish on the NASC wishlist thread and who knows what will come up

    Many of the auction donors are offering free shipping.

    Andrew sells D. adeleae and D. capensis at flytrapshop.com. You can also find them at garden centers like Lowes, Home Depot etc.

    Your selection is good- I would advise against D.filiformis as it's temperate and needs a bit of extra fussing about- easier to grow that species outside year-round and let it do the work for you.

    The plants you listed for possible ordering should be excellent choices for what you are looking for

    Another easy, nice looking one is D.madagascariensis, if one is available you would probably have success with that.

    D.adelae is dead-easy, as is D.aliciae. as mentioned above

    Keep us posted!

    Droserea filiformis var filiformis "Florida All Red" form produces seeds that don't need stratification and plants that don't go dormant. These can be grown in a terrarium easily. The trick is to grow them outdoors and selecting the plants that don't form hibernicula in the fall/winter. Unless of course you obtain plants that are known not to go dormant.

    I noticed last week one of my D.adelae's have a baby plantlet coming out of the pot's bottom drain hole! I just now potted it up in it's own little pot. You GOT to love 'em!
