    Unhappy

    Does anyone have any opinions about "The Savage Garden: Cultivating Carnivorous Plants" by Peter D'Amato? My hubby ordered it for me as a gift. Just wondering if any of you have read it, and if the recommendations in the books are well educated and viable?

    Thanks!

    i think its a good book. A lot of the things I already knew from talking and finding things on the web, but it has nice pictures and basics of each sort. Has some things about how to care for plants like soil and such, and covers most cp's i think? I regret not bringing it with me to college because i was worried about space. I actually sat down and read it in a day. It also sparked my interest in utric's, and I cant wait to get my gibba from magore =]

    I highly recommend it. Definitely the best book I've seen for getting started, but even after almost two years growing CPs, I still refer to it quite often.

    I'm with Carnivorous23. It's one that I use as a reference or to jog my memory on what particular CP looks like. I think you will really like it. It's also written in plain English without the jargonese you occasionally find in this type of book.

    I'm really looking forward to getting this CP book. It's going to be great to read through and use for reference material. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
