    I'd get a D. Filiformis / D. Filiformis "Tracyi" to add to your collection.

    If you are looking at other interesting things... Maybe a D. Adelae. It's not *tall* but it will grow to fill any container you have it in. Another option would be a pygmy sundew of some kind, after 1-2 years due to the gemmae thing they do you'll have a pot carpeted with them.

    The one in Kristoff's photo is D. macrantha. They are long sprawling messes if not given anchor points and can reach about 2-2.5m if you are lucky

    D. gigantea in cultivation can reach 1m but I have reliable reports from a few Aussies that it can reach 2m+ and have "a base thick enough to break your toe on".

    IIRC the largest Drosera on record was a specimen of D. erythrogyne which was more than 3m up a tree. There is a pic somewhere on the web with Robert Gibson standing next to it.
