    The Savage Garden, revised!

    What was a great original volume on CPs, The Savage Garden by Peter D'Amato, is now an even better resource with last week's release of a revised edition. I got the eBook version of it yesterday and I've been eating it up. Don't think twice about getting a copy, its a wonderful revision.

    (I hope posting a mention of this doesn't offend admin, but feel free to remove this post if it violates any TF rules)

    Hm... Was expecting to have to pay $30 for a book form of it... $14 for a version I can take around in my pocket doesn't seem too bad! What kind of information is in it? Any information about Sphagnum or any tips in it that would help out someone who's already pretty good at keeping Nepenthes alive? I may splurge and buy this...

    Why would the mention of a newly released revision of a book that's constantly recommended to newbies here offend me? I have nothing against books, I require my kids to read them all the time. haha!

    I too am curious if it covers any new topics or just elaborates/corrects information that was already there?

    It goes into some corrections and elaborations from the old version, such as with soil mixes. Most of the new content is new species and improvements in technology.
