    I only have:

    1. Savage garden, Peter D'amato
    2. Carnivorous plants of the world, James and Patricia Pietropaolo

    But I would love to have all the Allan Lowrie & Adian Slack books and the Utric one by Taylor.

    Interesting. Why do you say that? I've always thought it was a pretty good book (maybe not great - I'll change my wording on that!), but maybe that's because I kinda grew up reading it before I knew much about CPs.
    I think it has something to do with poaching?
    I think the poaching people were another book. I think that one is "Carnivorous Plants of the World".

    It is a fountain of mis-information. Cultivation techniques that make me cringe (and that is saying a lot considering the rough time I give my plants), flawed descriptions, seriously mis-ID'd photos... I bought the book way back when I first got into CPs thinking the more books I had the better. I wish I'd known better. It basically contradicted everything said by Slack (who was the most authoritative at the time.)

    Right now I only have Schnell's book. I used to own The Savage Garden--about five or six times. I kept giving it away when I gave plants to newbies and got tired of buying it. It's a great book though.

    Currently I only have 2 books but I would really like to get Adrian Slack's book and Charles Darwin's book.

    These are the 2 I currently own:

    Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada
    By Donald E. Schnell

    The Savage Garden
    By Peter D'Amato
    I consider every plant hardy until I kill it

    I have to agree with Pyro on Lecoufle's book. I have read it twice, that was more than enough.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.
