    good read, decent book. not everything in it is 100% correct but some of that comes down to not everything works for everybody. definatly a must have in a personal libraryjust dont take everything in it as gospel

    I have it. It's a great book for a beginner and for those who have been growing CP's for a few years. I keep referring to it as I progress to more challenging plants.

    First CP book that landed in my hands. I read it over and over at least 100 times before I even bought my first CP after years of resiting curiosity. As you learn in the practical field of growing, you start bending textbook "rules" to suit your own tastes and what works for you and your plants.
    For me, keeping Nepenthes has become a "natural instinct" whereas I still need to refer to text for Sarracenia, and can't keep a VFT to save my life.
    Savage Garden is a great starting point.

    Cheers

    Great book. But D'Amato grew most of his plants under certain conditions (bright light, for example, if I remember correctly), so if you have different conditions, you may have to modify your practices.
