Any good books about FT's in particular?

by Nats » Mon Jun 13, 2011 12:52 pm

After crusing the Amazon listing, I see all the books about fly traps are for kids! nothing serious and scientific.

There are maybe 2 only books about CP's in general which look like possible candidates.

Can anyone recommend a good book for fly traps in particular?
The more scientific and detailed the better :)

P.S. Something recent, not writen 100 years ago by a Darwin compatriate ;)

The Savage Garden by Peter D'Amato (Owner of California Carnivores) is a great book that covers everything! You can get it on Amazon for about 15 dollars, and it's a great buy! I know there are others, but I've never been as interested in them because they are all 40+ dollars.

I second the comment above.

Between that book and Barry Rice's online flytrap FAQ, you don't need to do much more research anywhere.

Here's a link to the book on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Savage-Garden-Cul ... 898159156/

Highly recommend The Savage Garden. one thing I realised about Carnivorous books is that they limit the grow condition to the writer part of the world he/she's been experience too. Here in South east Asia near the equator, Singapore has a different growing method but of coz usually indoor due to the plants usualy dont grow here except Nepenthes.
