Growing in some of the most barren and extreme habitats of our world, carnivorous plants are adapted to very specific environmental conditions which must be understood for their successful cultivation. This work profiles the natural habitats and environmental requirements of each genus of carnivorous plants to provide horticulturists with a clear and focused understanding of the specific conditions which these remarkable plants require. By understanding the strange worlds in which these unusual and often spectacular plants naturally grow, horticulturists will be better equipped to successfully cultivate and study them. The two volumes of "Carnivorous Plants and their Habitats" are 1,441 pages long, and includes 799 spectacular images. Part of the unique content of this beautiful work includes four spectacular new Nepenthes species (N. gantungensis, N. holdenii, N. hamiguitanensis and N. palawanensis), and detailed coverage of the new carnivorous genus Philcoxia.
