    Signed copies??! Awsome! I'd love that. Then I'd have another signed book to go with my signed Don Schnell book.

    The CP community sits on the edge of its collective seats waiting for the big release!

    How well does your book cover Utricularias? I have better luck with those plants than any other genus and intend to keep collecting them. I have some not in Savage's book so I hope they are in your book!
    Well, I had very harsh word limits to contend with---I would have loved to say much, much more about everything. That being said, my book does mention every Utricularia known at the time of publication (i.e. right now) and gives general information so that you should be able to figure out how to at least ATTEMPT to grow any species.

    Of course, only a small percentage of all Utricularia known are currently in cultivation!

I will have to look for info on a signed book. Congradulations on your book and thanks for giving the CP world an updated collection of info.
    Hey Josh,

    Well, I have to say one thing about your post. I think that D'Amato's book is the best thing out there on general cultivation.

    My book does not really supplant D'Amato. You see, when I was given the opportunity to write a book, I didn't want to rehash what has already been done so admirably by Slack, Schnell, D'Amato, Taylor, Clarke, and so on. Instead, I followed the model that Nick Romanowski tried---I wrote about stuff that was interesting me me, from my perspective, and which hadn't already been said.

    My recommendation: buy Savage Garden if you haven't already, so you can put a copy next to mine.

    Cheers

    You'd be amazed at what they don't tell authors...
