Hi! What are the top five care books for Carnivorous Plants that you would recommend? If out of print, I will try to find a used version. I would like to start a collection! The one book offered by the Flytrap Store looks great, but I can't afford it right now. Checking Barnes and Noble and Amazon, there seem to be MANY books available. Which are the best?

The Savage Garden by Peter D'Amato - A new edition is coming out in July so I would wait.

Any of Stewart McPherson's books that may interest you.
