    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.)
    I agree with what you say. Like you, I got it when I first was getting into CPs and I didn't really know enough to question what was said in his book. When I read it now, it's crazy how much is wrong in there [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img]

    I still like it a lot though, probably for sentimental reasons [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
