VFT. So far that's all I've grown but some sundews are awfully cute and some sarracenia are very pretty.

Google should know better. Shame on Google! Having been a science major with a Biology/Zoology background and a number of botany classes ... "genera" and other nerdy terms :geek: kinda got drilled into me . :mrgreen:

Alas! That would make for a very short poll list. Drosera, Drosophyllum, Dionaea, and Nepenthes are all Order Caryophyllales. While Darlingtonia and Sarracenia are Order Ericales. Cephs -- for those with discriminating tastes -- are Order Oxalidales. Utrics and pings are Order Lamiales..... Then again, a shorter poll list based on Order might make the voting choice a lot easier. :mrgreen:

Well, looks like both I(VFT) and @Nep101(Nep) were both wrong with predictions.

It took us by storm, but it looks like Drosera is the #1 favorite type of carnivore on this forum as of now(14 votes)!

Nope, Cephalotus seems like it's picking up more votes.

Feel bad for Utrics, pings, and helis ..... apparently, they aren't "feeling the love."

Haha, they need to get some of the larger utrics to really appreciate them I think. When my Nelumbifolia flowered, it was definitely more impressive than a hitchhiker :lol: I'm just surprised Cephs are tied for first. You guys rock!

Nothing beats my darlingtonia but I have to say I have found an unexpected love of drosera. Next to my cobras my d. adelae I just got has to be my 2nd favorite plant, followed by my binata and then my fly traps.
