Same as my Nep question, bright windowsill and I have a Drosera capensis Narrow leaf form Sundew already. I'd like to add some more so what would be best? No dormancy or cold options. Simple all year round Drosera.

Try capensis alba and capensis 'red'.  Both lovely.

Or D. binata.  Easy grower, but get quite large.

Or D. slackii, seems pretty bullet proof to me!

D. filiformis is a nice one or D. aliciae - both come in various forms.  Or you could try a straightforward Venus Fly Trap.

Google for pictures of Guy's and my suggestions to see what you like.

Kind regards,  Rob

Thanks both. I've had those in the past but in a greenhouse. Probably not the Binata but the other suggestion would work. I was looking also at a Drosera spatulata Sundew 

VFT I thought would need a harsher dormancy but having a read about them, a cold place indoors over winter will do. May go down that road after all
