Thanks Clinton, we have this book in our greenhouse as well and it is a
great text to have. Adrian Slack, alas, seems to be one of the few
knowledgable CP authors who also writes with a great deal of grace. He
wrote a second book a few years later titled Insectivorous Plants and
How to Grow Them. I have only seen one copy of it but it appears to give
very detailed cultivation information about more species than his
first book. Does anyone know the date or publisher of this book?
