    A Sundew For Me?

    I am looking for a sundew that meets a few requirements. I haven't kept CPs since I was a kid so please guide me in the right direction.

    I would like something that does not go dormant.
    I prefer something that can be grown by the light of a window (however I can supply a lamp if needed).
    I would like the plant to catch fruit flies and other small flies that get inside my old drafty house (so it would be great if the plant didn't need a dome over it).
    My house is around 73F to 77F, so a plant that fits that temp range.
    It would be great if the plant was common and readily available.
    Since I am haven't kept any CPs for a long time, I prefer a plant that has easy care.

    That is all I can think of at the moment. Is there a plant that fits my needs?
    Thank you for any suggestions!

    No carnivorous plant should be relied on to provide pest control, but besides that aspect, I agree with Api.
    Capensis!!!!

    Good Growing,

    Haha I know what you guys mean
    I have been swindling my parents for the past two years that my little plants control the pest problems in our house.
