Which drosera?

Are there any easy pygmy drosera or tuberous drosera that a newbie like me could grow without a greenhouse, or even on a windowsill in a container with some air holes possibly? (The humidity on my windowsill is around 42 percent, just in case I could grow it without a cover to ensure humidity)

Many pygmy Drosera can be grown on a windowsill, as long as it gets sufficient sun. They aren’t generally fussy about humidity, accept for when they’re growing from gemmae for a few weeks.

I’d recommend D. scorpioides, pygmaea, gibsonii, leucoblasta, micrantha all as easy species, but many others are also easy to grow.

Thanks to both of you, I was actually already considering drosera pulchella because the name was easier to remember. I’ll probably just label the pots at this point. I was getting tired of trying to remember all those names :)
