Book Launch: Growing Carnivorous Plants in the Tropics

Growing Carnivorous Plants in the Tropics, our latest publication, will be officially launched at the Singapore Garden Festival, this Saturday (July 17, 2010) at 4pm, at Suntec Singapore.

Gathering together information and years of hands-on experience into a single book, Growing Carnivorous Plants in the Tropics provides friendly and detailed help on all aspects of growing carnivorous plants in tropical conditions similar to Singapore. The book covers:
  • case studies for growing carnivorous plants under different environments, including outdoors, indoors, and balconies;
  • cultivation of challenging temperate carnivorous plants, such as highland species, in extreme lowland conditions with little temperature fluctuation;
  • and information on different genera of carnivorous plants and essential knowledge on growing and propagating them.
The book launch will see the launch of two books that will be of great interest to tropical gardeners. The other book being launched is Tropical Gardeners’ Guide to Healthy Plants by Dr Fong Yok King. The Guest of Honour for the book launch will be Dr Leong Chee Chiew, Dy CEO, National Parks Board.

The Singapore Garden Festival will be held from 15-22 July, 2010, and will feature award-winning garden and floral designers and designs from around the world. There will also be a vibrant marketplace.

As the book launch is part of the formal Singapore Garden Festival (SGF), attendees will be required to purchase SGF tickets to attend the book launch. Tickets can be bought at Suntec on the day. We hope that you will support the book and the Singapore Garden Festival and join us there!
