yes I think The Savage Garden is a bit on the general side but it has been pretty interesting to get an overview about many plant families. Since I had the book anyway, I figured I might as well. My plants have done ok with little special attention but I feel like if I give then care more to their requirements I Might have healthier more vigorous plants. I’m sure it’s about balance, which it sounds like you have found. Thank you for your input! I do appreciate people’s insights. It helps me navigate new territoryI'm more of the opposite. I check up on my plants and provide them enough care then leave them alone. I find that's all they really need to thrive instead of me making unnecessary adjustments. Currently my setup for mainly Nepenthes has automated humidity control and lighting. I don't really have to do too much besides the occasional watering every 1-2 weeks or when I think the media is too dry. Fertilizing is roughly once a month or so. I am currently waiting for a misting system I ordered off from Aliexpress to arrive, then I will need to figure out how to arrange the tubing for enough water coverage. I have read the Savage Garden but I think the information feels a bit dated. I find myself reading more scientific papers or asking growers what their care is like.
