    It would be nice if Sarrs would grow in regular soil and not need special water. The leaves would lie flat, so they wouldn't be so prone to bend over or break. And I wish they'd have bright yellow flowers through the summer too. And why have pitchers - the plants should just get nutrients through their roots. That would be an ideal Sarr and we could call it Sarracenia dandelionia.

    I wish my CP's were vegetarian [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
    But seriously, I wish that they didn't need so much light & humidity so that I could keep them with my other house plants.

    I'd make all CP's be able to thrive in an Ohio climate year round. It'd also be nice if I didn't have to use tap water.

    Some CPs (like N. villosa) shouldn't be so picky.

    I wish i could use tap water, and water less often.

    I wish that they all (except some of the really fast weeds like D. capensis) grew faster (especially N. villosa).

    I'll think of more.

    Besides for the above, I wish there were a CP that ate aphids and other pests. It doesn't even seem like a very unreasonable request - if a CP could figure out how, you know it would.

    What do you mean "getting leggy"? Does that refer to the increasing internodal distance?
