You might want to look into nepenthes, many species grow in Indonesia, so it would be a walk in the park for you.

Bonjour Jeff. :))
Thanks for the welcome.
Well, the island is Java, the capital (where I live) is Jakarta. The nation is Indonesia. Hehhehe...
Its near Singapore. Lolz.
I have met some people who thought that Indonesia is inside Bali, I hope you know that its the other way around. Lolz..

I am so inexperienced I dare myself not yet. Hahah..
My first CP was delivered on 29th June 2016. XD XD XD XD
And the space was also limited in my house so I think I will start with small plants first.
Thankyou for the welcome, Curtisconners

Hi mike... Thankyou for tye welcome.. :))
I well.. Unsure yet about the difference of this Drosera. I am not competent enough to know abt the differences yet.. The breeder just gave me this as giveaway..
Aaand since its starts growing nicely (despite 2 browning leaves and 1 fried point, I dont know how to 'sun-break' my plant yet) in my tropical condition, can I safely assume its a tropical one? Hahaha..

Hi Dexenthes. I am still learning about the CP and requirements for their survival. Hahhaa.. I also just newly employed so I cannot prepare many things like soil and peats.. I hope when I have enough time & money I can do the soil hunting first. Lolz.... Acquiring the plant is the easier part. Soil not so.

Hello dr_donut. Your name makes me hungry. Lolz.
I still also searching abt the Neps. I still dont have any idea which is the best for beginner. So many name and shapes. Hahahha. Shame if the plant die because of my incompetence.
Well, according to the internet, my place will be im the ultra lowland. Extra hot extra humid like steam. I hope i can grow one in a few months.. Wish me luck...... Hahaha.

Hi again Jeff...
Well, I have seen the plant. But not familiar with it. I live in the capital city, rarely venture to areas with major plant diversity. I know that we called them an Ant Nest plant here but I think it is not a really common 'pet' in my capital. Hahahha.. All tall building and small parks only with common plants and grasses..
If I want to find one, I think I have to go outside my island because its more plentier in sumatera, Kalimantan (borneo) and Papua (irian) Not really convinient. XD
Indonesia has too many biodiversity, usually if one was not interested in plants/animals, they wont pay too much attention..
Too bad..
