1. Nepenthes
2. Cephalotus
3. Drosera/Sarracenia/Utricularia (3 way tie!)

No VFT's for me!
Even outdoors, I've had trouble growing them (mostly trouble with SQUIRRELS!!!!)

I see why your name is cephalotus phyco :D

Cephalotus is a beautiful plant. I love the vibrant colors, the translucent light windows, the hooked peristome, and pretty much everything else about it :)

Capensis? Seriously?

Wow!
Capensis?
It's a nice plant, but such a weed!

I too am a fan of capensis, such a badass sundew. I have yet to have problems with it being a "weed" yet......

I do like capensis a lot, but only the six i have. I spent almost 2 months nursing them back to health after they (and my scarlet bells in same pot) were rescued from a small garden store that was killing the few random cp's they had from improper care. But they are not my favorite (still close though).
If I have helped you, please thank me! ;)
