    That's where I found the two, Thae S. Garden. I just wanted some more opinions and personal growing tips. Also, can either one of them be grown in the windowsill. What is your personal growing experince. Any growing tips?

    Hey Wesley,
    I only grow D.niditula X pulchella (its very easy), but I am sure both are equally easy to grow. I grow my plants uncovered (i.e. no humidity protection/ covering) on a south windowsill in about 60% peat and 40% sand. They really are very easy pygmies, great for a beginner with pygmies.

    Easy? Yah, as long as you don't transplant them.

    Hi Wes,

    Drosera nitidula x D. pulchella is probably the easiest. I have to disagree with Goldtrap about all of them being easy though! Try growing D. pyncoblasta or D. citrina sometime, lol!

    Here is an article I wrote on the subject:
