What are your favorite plants?

by Benurmanii » Mon Sep 12, 2016 12:36 am

Just for fun :) I am wondering what everyone's favorite plant of each genus is? Of course, monotypic genera don't apply (except for Dionaea), because of course everyone's favorite Aldrovanda is vesiculosa! Hybrids and cultivars are included.

I'll list mine alphabetically by genera:

Byblis: B. gigantea, of course ;)

Dionaea: D. muscipula 'King Henry'

Drosera: D. camporupestris

Genlisea: G. metallica

Heliamphora: H. purpurascens :D

Nepenthes: N. macfarlanei

Pinguicula: This is a hard one, but I believe right now I'm really in love with P. involuta

Sarracenia: Sarracenia leucophylla 'Hurricane Creek'

Utricularia: U. quelchii

(Edit: I know I said no monotypic genera, but since there are so many varieties in Dionaea cultivars, I decided to include my favorite).

Blasphemy!

A lot of people have some good picks, especially Byblis (but that is probably because I love all Byblis :lol:).

Can't say I'm not surprised with the lack of love for Genlisea, but I find that they are something that is hard to appreciate. Maybe I should start changing that mindset around here... ;)

It doesn't help that in 3 years I've seen one Genlisea for sale in the US.
