Re: Aquarium Plant Books
Jeremy wanted recommendations on plant books.
My favorite books are:
Aquarium Plants Manual, by Ines Scherurmann, Barrons, 1992
This is a short, general, informative book packed with lots of information,
including layout, pictures, and fertilization requirements. Its readily
available at your better chain book stores such as Border's, Barnes &
Aquarium Plants: Their identification, cultivation, and ecology, by Rataj
and Horeman, TFH Publications, 1977.
This offers a more in-depth, thorough, treatment. I'm not sure if it's
still available. Its layout is frustrating. For instance, Vallisneria
references are covered in six different sections, and pictures are included
in two separate pages _apart from those references_!
