Is there anything you don't personally like about CP's or something you'd change?

for me, I wish that temperates didn't need a Dormancy

I'd just like to speed up time every now and then. This hobby take some patience!

Personally, I don't mind dormancy, mostly because it gives someting to look forward to in spring. Nothing like seeing those sarras come back with a vengeance!

Oh, and I wish I could use tap water!

I wish they were bigger and did not need so much water or I could safely use tap water. Oh yeah instead of "night vision googles" I want digestive enzyme goggles so I can "see" cps in bogs out the car window.

faster growth, bigger growth, less humidity, and they should be able to grow on shade (stupid sarrs! lol :p) . Dormancy is kind of good and kind of bad so I haven't decided :p

Well, personally, I'd like to have D. adelae to cease and desist it's 'possum playing. Then there's that cobra lily choosing to die, when east of the West Coast or the UK.

I wish that Venus Flytraps would grow at least 5" traps! Also, the tap water thing would be great too!

It would be nice if Sarrs would grow in regular soil and not need special water.  The leaves would lie flat, so they wouldn't be so prone to bend over or break.  And I wish they'd have bright yellow flowers through the summer too.  And why have pitchers - the plants should just get nutrients through their roots.  That would be an ideal Sarr and we could call it Sarracenia dandelionia.

But seriously, I wish that they didn't need so much light & humidity so that I could keep them with my other house plants.

Some CPs (like N. villosa) shouldn't be so picky.

I wish i could use tap water, and water less often.

I wish that they all (except some of the really fast weeds like D. capensis) grew faster (especially N. villosa).

I'll think of more.

Besides for the above, I wish there were a CP that ate aphids and other pests. It doesn't even seem like a very unreasonable request - if a CP could figure out how, you know it would.

What do you mean "getting leggy"? Does that refer to the increasing internodal distance?

I wish they could thrive in 10% humidity and 120 degrees teperature, and could be watered in tap water.
