If so, why? :D

I'm personally growing fond of mexican pinguicula these days. I love how delicate they look shimmering in the sun... and how deadly they are to fruit flies in the summer. :twisted:

I love Drosera for their proliferation and how many species are in the genus (gotta catch 'em all). I also think the dew is very pretty :)

I second that. Drosera first, Mexican Pings second (for me anyways) love the way they shimmer too!

Same here,there are many reason to like Mexican Pinguicula,I will write few of them.
1)First and main reason I like them is because of their beautiful pink shade.(most of the variety)
2)Easy to grow and propagate.
3)Less demanding,so we can experiment it in different medias.
4)Flowers most of the time when healthy.
5)Can fit in tiny pots and goes in succulent phase if we forget to water.

I think these are enough reasons to like Mexican Pinguiculas.I guess Grey can add a lot of points here. :)

My vote goes to Drosera. I like the symmetry of the rosettes. And it's amazing how widespread and varied they are. Most are red and that's my favorite color too.
