View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Carnivorous plants are as fascinating to their prey as they are to human onlookers. Ranging in size from a few millimetres to over a metre, these extraordinary plants - which ensnare and digest insects, can be grown in the house or greenhouse as easily as more familiar plants. Not only are they useful as fly-catchers, but many of them are also exquisitely beautiful. This book is for all those who wish to grow for themselves the familiar Venus Fly Trap, elegant Trumpet Pitchers, capacious Tropical Pitchers and sparkling Sundews. Over 200 flowering carnivorous plants are included together with full notes on those which are particularly suitable for cultivation. Adrian Slack is the author of "Carnivorous Plants" and five times winner of the Chelsea Gold Medal.
