Find out about pitcher plants, which kill and eat animals; Austrian orchids that bloom underground; tank bromeliads, which have entire communities of animals living inside them; and many more. This wonderfully detailed guide from the author of Pet Bugs; More Pet Bugs; and Stink Bugs, Stick Insects, and Stag Beetles unearths the wildest, weirdest plants in the world, as well as the surprisingly bizarre behaviors of everyday plants, trees, and shrubs.
