Often referred to as the "Carnivorous Plant Bible", this is the most easy to read comprehensive growing guide for Carnivorous Plants. This book is sure to be a hit with experienced growers and newbies alike.
It covers all the most popular species in depth and touches on the rarer ones as well. It includes background information on each plant along with detailed advice on cultivation.
I bought my copy when the book was first published and I couldn't imagine my life without it!
