Hi Andrew,

Lowrie 1 is exclusively concerned with tuberous Drosera and
is next to impossible to obtain.

Lowrie 2 is 95% pygmies with a smattering of other drosera
and is the only CP book I know of which covers the pygmies
in detail. Other books which cover the pygmies include
Plants of Prey by Erickson and Flora of Australia 1982 Vol 8
p 9-64 by Marchant and George.

Lowrie 3 covers Utrics (with many inexplicable exceptions),
Cephalotus, Nepenthes, miscellaneous Drosera including a few
pygmies. I would strongly recommend obtaining Lowrie 3
whilst you can.

Good luck,
