    That's an easy one! U. sandersonii. Also livida, subulata, and bisquamata.

    easy? most any terrestrial Utric is fairly easy but i imagine you want flowers on a semi regular basis so i would try:

    sandersonii
    livida
    bisquamata(especially Betty's Bay, its a larger flowered form)
    lateriflora
    prehensilis
    some forms of longifolia are fairly easy to flower
    dichotoma and its varieties(nova-zealandiea flowers every so often for me)
    calycifida cultivars are easy to flower especially 'Mrs. Marsh'

    unless you want a true weed stay away from subulata

    most any terrestrial utric is simple to grow. some such as tricolor are just a pain to get to flower. get yourself 6 or 8 species and you should always have something in flower

    PM me with your address, and I'll send you a plug of U. livida!

    Just plant the plug in a pot (bigger the better; try a 5" square plastic pot) with a 50/50 peat/quartz sand mix, and a little LFS at the bottom to cover the holes. It'll spread over the surface and flower prolifically.
