Being newer to orchid growing, I'm trying to learn all the basics and this book helped me out. I really liked the chapter on cymbidium orchids so I can tell their story now when showing them off. I've always been afraid I would do something wrong with my orchids, but after reading this I feel much more confident my cymbidiums will be around for a long time!
I loved this guide. It is really helpful to tell you exactly what you need to do for your cymbidiums specifically. I really liked the summary at the end because it is a quick way to remind me of all of the requirements I read about. Well done and well organized and quite entertaining as well. I highly recommend this!
I am new to orchid growing so this should help me keep my Cymbidium Orchid alive. This guide is written in simple terms for a newbe like me. I feel more confident that I'll get my Cymbidium Orchid to bloom and keep it alive and well for years to come.
As I mentioned in another review, my girlfriend and I are just starting our collection of orchids so we are looking for every bit of advice we can get. Just like the Phalaenopsis guide we bought, this manual is very step-by-step. It is the same format as Berdak's other guide book, so it made it easy to follow again, plus having it all on Kindle makes it much more portable (especially on my smart phone). Definitely recommended, especially at such a low price.
you don't need this book. If you are 'new' to Orchid culture, though Cymbidium does have it's quirks, the plants aren't difficult given that you have some sort of air conditioning, if you live in a hot climate and a piece of cake, so to speak, if you live in a moderate climate such as the West Coast. I'll add that I've grown the plants in North Texas with pretty good success.The point is that this book is very basic, but if you want to grow the plants and you've no prior experience with Orchid, I'd recommend the American Orchid Society as a good starting point and it's free:[...]And there is a plethora of other other free sites on the mighty intertubes. Here's another suggestion:[...]On the other hand, the book isn't expensive and it's got some pretty pictures.
I bought several of these orchid care pocket guides and love each one of them! The advice is unique in each orchid guide even though they have the same chapter structure. The other commenter clearly didn't actually READ these books lol...each one is totally different content! The best part is that my cymbidiums are still alive since following all the steps in this book, knock on wood! This book is a great, quick read, especially for those of us who don't want to read hundreds of pages to get to the point lol. I've already recommended this to a few friends!
Sometimes I guess I'm rather traditional. I just want paper to highlight and bookmark, and not worry about getting wet or dirty like you have to do with most electronic devices. It did provide a great background on cymbidiums, which I needed desperately after unexpectedly becoming the owner of a huge, overgrown and slightly diseased pot of Cymbidiums. After 5 weeks, they are still alive, so I am doing something right.
I've been growing orchids for years and love to read as much as I can about orchid growing. This guide had a few new tips and also some important reminders. My favorite part was actually the chapter which talked all about the history of cymbidiums. I never knew how famous they have been for thousands of years and how they spread around the world. Very cool and well researched.
