Orchids have a reputation for being hard to grow, but this comprehensive manual will lead gardeners straight to the best variety to cultivate in their climate, and provide all the necessary information to make their flowers flourish. Dozens of dazzling photographs showcase many of these exotic blooms, while detailed sections discuss how to raise them indoors and in growing cases, as well as in greenhouses, and give plenty of advice on watering, misting, composts, heating and cooling, repotting, and dealing with pests and diseases. This remarkable illustrated A-to-Z features important tips for every orchid, and includes notes on whether it's easy to grow and where to grow it, what temperature it needs, and much more.

I am new to raising orchids and this little book has everything I every wanted to know. I have looked at a number of other books most of which are much larger as far as number of pages but they have a lot of extra junk and are hard to find anything. This book gives you want you need fast and to the point. It has the information you want about each type of orchid and not a lot of useless information that just takes up a bunch of pages. It has information on taking car of your plants and again just the information you need not stuff you could care less about. Would recommend this small book over all others I have seen.

This book was very helpful. I have tried to work with orchids and have been unsuccessful. This book gave me some tips which I hope willchange that.

Good information on some orchids, skimpy on others. Over all, really not enough information to be really useful

Very good
