Drosera or pinguicula growing requirements

I had a question regarding drosera or pinguicula species. I was wondering which species would be the best suited for growing in a regular home environment? I have a low humidity and I am new to growing these. I'm ultimately looking for the easiest species to take care of?

Thank you I appreciate your help, and knowledge.

You want to buy TROPICAL varieties of either one. They'll do fine in a bright window.

Hey thanks tommyr, I was lookin at maybe a D. capensis they seem to be simple. I was also planning on donating some to the RCTC greenhouses in hopes that they will tame the fungus gnats. Also they will be fun to learn about without requiring much care!
