WW - Sounds like she needs a tropical sundew. Drosera capensis would be perfect for what you’re describing as long as decent rh can be maintained which the water tray should help with. DI/RO/Rain water required.

D. capensis:

Could she grow this in an open glass bowl? That would help with humidity. And water on bottom of bowl all the time?

Yes, pure water. One of my many mistakes...

It’s worth a try...they’re not too spendy on eBay...$12-$20 with shipping. I’d send you one if I had more but just starting out with them. Looks like most recommend rh of at least 50%. A high sided bowl might do better than a dish.

...and actually, I could send you some seed in a month or so as mine is currently flowering. Capensis readily self-pollinate.

Lots of light, peat/perlite/sand soil. This site has some good info: Germinating and Growing Sundews from seed and putting Drosera seeds through Cold Stratification

Sundew plantlet starting to mature from leaf cutting. Seems to be moving pretty quickly, now. Should get 2 plants from this cutting.

Cool! I'm definitely getting one when I can. Best for me to start with a little plant, instead of a seed, etc. Learning curve....

My SIL gave me a tiny little start of a Crassula falcata for mother's day. Started it off a leaf. Now I have a baby one, and about five more little starts. I get nervous just watching them.

Window with north light won't be enough, will it?
