    Longer lived Sundew

    Well, I've been doing (in a small way) CPs for four or five years now and having relatively good success, except my drosera choices have all been fairly short lived, say a year or maybe two. I'd like to seek recommendations for one that would get bigger and better each year with windowsill...

    Grass or sedge in CP container

    NW Arkansas Semi-newbie

    Like everyone else, I have tried (unsuccessfully) VFTs when I was a kid. I don't believe I've ever tried one since I got serious (adulthood). I have done sundews successfully, but then everyone calls them weeds, right? I've a degree in Horticulture and (more importantly) have been gardening...
