This is my first draft, I don't want to advertise my company here - just wanted to share my book I'm working on. I'm currently 12 years old and took all these pictures myself, I have a huge collection and my mom thinks I'm addicted! Feedback is appreciated! Thank you!

Dang, that is one impressive book. Nice website too! Here's some of tips for improving your book.
1. To improve your book and make it look more professional, you might want to clean the area before taking pics.
2. There should be a diverse amount of photos (try not to use a sundew pic more than once or twice).
3. For the indoor growing pic, you might want to take a pic that includes CPs (it just looks like a glowing box to me).
4. Lastly, the VFT propagation pic seems quite fuzzy.
Besides these minor issues, I think your book is awesome.

I enjoyed reading this. I found one typo on page 3 under the Soil section at the end. "So you plants can thrive", change "you" to "your". Looks great!

It looks amazing! Are those all your own original photos? The cover looks like it was done by a pro :) A few photos could use captions identifying the species/cultivar, but otherwise it looks great!

Wow.. only 12? I'm impressed! Besides getting water tested at a pet store a cheap tds meter is probably useful. Also, you mention distilled water in the later part but nothing the first time you talk about water. My local grocery doesn't sell reverse osmosis but they do sell distilled. Another place for purchasing reverse osmosis water is aqarium stores.

Well done! I know I couldn't have done anything like this at your age.
