    There's not a lot of Drosera regia cxarnivorous bits around in winter on my plants anyway.

    Oh well. Thanks for the help. What about D. venusta? Could they handle an Ohio summer? It gets up to 90 during the day here in summer. Should it sit in water like vft's?

    Try a Drosera capensis, they're practically bomb proof and readily available.

    Those I have heard of. I'll probably go with that this spring. Thanks for all the help.

    Most definitely. Even trying to stick one to multiple leaves on my D. capensis doesn't work. So I drop into Nepenthes pitchers instead.

    I second the idea of D. capensis. These things may be common among growers but they're pretty splashy as well. And some forms get big. I do think the D. venusta would be fine in 90 F. temps as long as the humidity was good.

    Do you know of any forms in particular that get big? Would a capensis do well with care similar to vft's minus the dormancy?

    I have capensis forms that survive in my Sarracenia pots, so yes they would take "VFT" type conditions minus hard frosts or cold spells. And D. venusta will sulk in the warmer portions of the year, but so long as it cools at some point they're pretty easy. My photo thread shows them in their prime right now.
    D. regia is also one that likes cool nights and moderate humidity, airy soil and lots of food. Those are basically its needs.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
