I've been anxiously awaiting the release of this 3 volume set of books since I heard they were coming out. Last week I broke down and ordered the set. When I got home today, the books were here waiting for me. I knew these were going to be good but, I had no idea they would be THIS good ! I've only had time for a quick perusal of all 3 enormous volumes but I can already say that this set is STUNNING, one of Red Fern's finest releases to date.
These vast volumes cover Cephalotus, all 3 Nepenthes and all recognized Drosera and Utricularia species from Down Under, all in complete detail. 1,300 + pages of information (scientific, anecdotal and cultivation), amazing color photos, scientific drawings, electron microscope photos of seeds, and range maps for EVERY SINGLE SPECIES ! The amount of work that has gone into these incredible tomes is unfathomable. Decades of field work, lab work and cultivation experience spanning the most unique continents most unique flora gathered here in one place. For the price, I was not expecting this much. Absolutely stellar work. Allen Lowrie has done a phenomenal job here.
Every fan of carnivorous plants should think about getting these. Every hardcore Drosera or Utricularia fan NEEDS to own these !
I can't wait to dig in deeper !
