    Thanks BobZ, that clears up a lot of the confusion I've had about classifications.

    As for the Savage Garden, I do plan to get a copy as soon as I have the money for it.

    The Savage Garden is a great book and useful resource but bear in mind that no one book is THE book. It can be a good guideline but don't take every word as the gospel. There are all kinds of ways of growing CPs and everyone needs to find what works for them in their own locality. Many growers "break the rules" and have great success with their plants.

    Do some research, do some experimenting and find out what works for you. A good way is to research the physical characteristics of a plant's native environment and try to duplicate that...plus reading and asking questions.

    That is true.. but as far as literature on CP's goes.. you must admit that this is the best hardcopy source available to us!
