Carnivorous Plants: Gardening with Extraordinary Botanicals
If you can, buy two copies: one for the coffee table and one for the garden too.
Carnivorous plants used to be considered something of a niche, fawned over mainly by collectors and maybe some horror-film fans. But these plants that eat bugs and small rodents are poised to be the next big trend. Now commonly sold alongside succulents and air plants, they provide striking architectural style and can be grown both indoors and out.
Carnivorous Plants is a smart, accessible guide to the world of carnivorous plants, with information on growing and cultivating commonly available and easily grown varieties. For fans and collectors of these other-worldly plants, and those curious to try something new.
