    Make your own list!
    From the ones listed by Tamlin i never had any problems with citrina, grievei, hyperostigma, leucoblasta, microscapa, oreopodion, pycnoblasta, sewelliae and spilos.
    Different growing conditions make different results. I'm usually ignoring lists of hard to grow pygmy drosera. This is why some find one species easy and others find it hard to grow. For me i'm more careful with closterostigma and stelliflora. Miniata, eneabba, leucoblasta and androsacea go dormant for me but they come back with no problem when the temps go down.
    Best regards,
    Marius

    I hear ya. There's a lot of overlap with challenging plants but while Mach struggles with pulchellas, I find them to be extremely easy. I also find that while some species gave me a hard time the first time around, they were much better the second time around (D. manni & D. lasiantha). Sometimes I had "beginner's luck (D. callistos) and struggle the next time. My wholesale greenhouse friend is more than willing to help me out with pots... especially the taller ones:

    If You need pots, well, I have lots of those. I don't feel as tho I have even BEGUN to repay you for your great generosity in sharing your plants with me. Please let me know what I can do !
    best regards. Louise
    So with taller pots and more appropriate watering, with more plants in a sand/peat mixture, things should go a lot better next year.

    Well, either way it seems the ones that seem to overlap the most on the easy side are the ones I'd like to give a try. I'm currently thinking roseana, niditula x puchella, Lake Badgerup, scorpiodes, pygmae, puchella, and mannii.

    This is what gets me.... "The good (healthy), the bad (dormant), and the ugly (dead)", all in the same pot:

    Height or surface area? Various sizes, whatever I have on hand. Next year, taller ones for sure, through my greenhouse friend.
