Wdym, they are super easy to grow. Probably even easier to grow than flytraps and sarracenia. The easy ones don't even need anything special. And most are pretty easy to grow. You can just put it on a windowsill and water it twice a week if you have a ventricosa or ventricosa hybrid. And some of the other ones are super easy to grow too. I grow a couple nepenthes on my windowsill and I don't do anything extra. Super easy houseplant. And most are less than 50$ unless you are getting REALLY FANCY nepenthes

Most are under 30$ none of my nepenthes are over 30$. My cheapest one is 13$ and there are even cheaper ones than that. And they are beautiful too.

Exactly. And the heating in my house sucks. I want to grow things that I can grow fairly easily outside almost year round.

It's harder to grow plants outdoors here. We have extreme weather. Very cold winters. Very hot summers. No rain at all during the summer. Thunderstorms that dump large amounts of rain within a short amount of time. Hail. High winds. :? So that's why I'm growing lots of sundews indoors.

I'm kinda the opposite, I like having carnivorous houseplants more

Nepenthes are super easy. Easier than flytraps and sarracenia

My indoor grow space is limited to a tiny cramped windowsill with less than 2 sq feet of space. It is full of young seedlings. That's about the space I have.

Well, it's spring and things are starting to grow! Sarracenia and Darlingtonia are putting on lots of new pitchers. And sundews are catching flies by the second...
