For anyone who has ever tried in vain to keep a mail-order Venus Fly Trap alive, help is at hand. Nurseryman Slack explains how to cultivate this and the 14 other species of carnivorous plants, both indoors and outside in artificial bogs. While Slack's Carnivorous Plants (MIT Pr., 1979) focuses on natural history, this work provides detailed information on cultivation. Numerous excellent illustrations and precise, practical information make it a worthwhile addition to horticultural collections.
