If I had the resources to create and maintain an environment, with all the attributes I might so choose, I'd grow as many of them as I could.

But if I could only grow, ten. Of those I've already had the pleasure to grow, I'd pick, these;

1) Drosera regia 'Big Easy'
2) Drosera schizandra
3) Drosera capensis
4) Drosera admirabilis
5) Drosera nidiformis
6) Drosera madagascariensis
7) Drosera falconeri
9) Drosera filiformis (Florida red)
10) Drosera filiformis var. tracyi

Not necessarily in the above order.
