OK I did not know where to post this but is there any cps that can cope with low levels of light.

I wanted a plant for my hall where there is hardly any light.

Iam thinking no but thought i would ask.

Some species of Drosera, like the adelae, do better in low light levels. Most species of butterworts prefer low light levels. There are almost certainly other CPs that do well in lower light levels, but the vast majority of them prefer lots of sun.

Yup - any of the three sisters do great in lower light levels. Although some will disagree, Cephalotus can also be grown in fairly low light levels. Many are shaded by grasses in their native habitat - so they can adapt. While I grow them in many different conditions, I've had one on a north-facing windowsill in my office for about a year - it only sees diffuse indirect light & has been growing very well. As you would expect, it has leaves that are quite large (4.75" long & 1.75" wide) & nice-sized pitchers also (close to 3").
