    If the first it is very good. lots of stuff on tuberous Drosera. The second book is also really good. Obviously not as good as 'The Savage Garden' but still really good. I wish I owned it. Oh yes and what do you mean by "moldest son" ? Does he grow mold [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Oh how I HATE typos!

    Jerry: Yeah, I heard about that after the fact. Oh well. I just picked it up after work on Saturday. It reads nore like a textbook, providing good info on plant structures.

    Next on my list is Australian sundews and then Taylor's book on Utrics!
