For centuries, carnivorous plants have carried an air of
fascination and mystique unparalleled in the plant world. "Growing
Carnivorous Plants" is a comprehensive guide to identifying and
cultivating these remarkable plants. From the well-known Venus
flytrap to obscure African sundews, from the giant pitcher plant
vines of Borneo the microscopic bladderworts of Florida, more than
200 species, hybrids and cultivars from all genera of carnivorous
plants are described. Included are explanations of the fascinating
and diverse mechanisms the plants use to trap their victims.
Imitating a plant's natural environment is the key to success in
growing carnivorous plants, and this book will help readers select
the best plants to grow on a windowsill, in a terrarium or
greenhouse. Information on how to feed carnivorous plants will
enable even the most squeamish grower to ensure that plants receive
the nutrients they require. The book's 400 photographs include both
spectacular images from the wild and lovely plants in cultivation.
