    Nick Romanowski ISBN: 0813025095

    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    I own:

    The Savage Garden (Peter D'Amato)

    Carnivorous Plants (Adrian Slack)

    Carnivorous Plants of Australia Vol. 3 (Allen Lowrie)

    Carnivorous Plants (Marcel Lecoufle) - I've never seen this one again after I bought it a local reptile shop a long, long time ago. Anyone ever read this book? It has some great information but it can be a bit inaccurate at times.

    Killer Plants (Mycol Doyle) - My first CP book ever! My dad got it for me at a book fair when I was in third grade [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I have:

    both Slack books

    SG

    the first Schnell book

    both Cheers books

    some book that was BHS I think

    Lecoufle's book (which I will argue is the worst piece of dung out there. Sorry Leopard but there is nothing "great" about it)

    And lastly (I think) Taylor's monograph
    'My love was science- specifically biology and, more specifically, when placed in a common jar, which of two organisms would devour the other.'

    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?
