TROPICAL SUNDEW | Drosera burmannii
An illustrated book that aims to open the minds of Indian children (and adults!) to the magical world of plants that exists in our own 'backyard', the Western Ghats in southern India. Featuring the weird and the whacky, the carnivorous and the parasitic, the poisonous, the stinky and the unimaginably valuable, this books aims to be the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of the Plant Kingdom, if you will.
