A great book to read!

I was at the library a few days ago when I picked up a book on Carnivorous Plants. “Growing Carnivorous Plants” by Barry A. Rice is a nice book to read as it covers almost all kinds of carnivorous plants in the world.

This book talks about different cultivation methods and concise descriptions on the special characteristics of the various plants. The photos in the book are simply unbelievable! Close-up shots and wild carnivorous plants photos will keep you flipping the book again and again!

The author himself also has a website (Sarracenia.com) where he continues to talk on growing these exotic plants. I learnt a lot from this book, about how growing conditions affect the growth of the plants, diseases and pests and also tips on growing carnivorous plants.

The book can be found in many National Libraries ( Dewey Code: 635.93375 ) in the home & gardening section.
