African drosera and cephalotus. African drosera because they are fairly easy to grow and grow very fast, and cephalotus for its cool looking pitchers.

Hands down Sarrs. Specifically flavas and moorei.

Now there are very specific exceptions. A Drosera filiformis that has recently broken dormancy and is catching the morning Sun is a pretty spectacular sight.

All of the cp range except for some drastically unspectacular species/hybrids such as sarracenia psittacina. I like what I grow :mrgreen: .

I like sarrs.

I was surprised to see noone said VFTs. Thats a close second but only if theyre seed grown and special/different.

I started a thread like this about a year ago, and I think my answer has changed a bit.

Right now, VFTs are my top, followed by Sarrs (particularly Leucos, Flava, and Purp), then not far behind are Pings.

Definitely the amp like Wikiwakawakawee said!

My all-time favorites are Aldrovanda, D. prolifera,

My favorites in my collection are:
N. briggsiana (var. Peter D'Amato)
N. mikei
N. 'Singaporegardentech'
N. robcantleyi

I think S. flava and S. leucophylla don't get the credit they deserve!

We all have Venus fly traps....but think about it...whats cooler than a Venus fly-trap?!

My favorite to grow is the Venus Fly Trap! But I think my favorite of all carnivorous plants is Cephalotus. It is both bizarre and beautiful.

Wanted:
S. leuco "H.C. White"
D. muscipula: "Microdent", "Dentate"
C. follicularis: Hummer's Giant
