This updated edition covers changes in soil and fertilizer products; water quality updates; advances in artificial lighting; new information on transplanting, pot sizes, and plant grooming; and the many incredible new species of carnivorous plants that have been discovered and hybridized, including a dozen new sun pitchers and over 50 tropical pitcher plants.  It also includes the the metric system for our carnivorous plant friends abroad!

This book is the best authoritative source of information regarding the care of all kinds of carnivorous plants. I've been growing them for over 50 years and wish I had this book back then.


Great book that really opened my eyes to the carnivorous plants in their natural habitats.
