All in color! Orchids can be found in virtually all regions of the world, and have attracted people for many years with the exquisite colors and beautiful shapes of their flowers. But how can you grow these extraordinary plants? There's advice on cultivating orchids in the home (on a windowsill, on a trolley, and in a window greenhouse) and in the greenhouse (heating, ventilation, temperature control, storage and maintenance, and more). Next comes potting and composts, light, water and humidity, feeding, propagation, germinating seeds, and pests, diseases, and other ailments. From fertilizers and containers to pruning, watering, and weeding, the essential information you need to know is here. The last section describes 30 orchid genera, including their history, physiology, and horticulture requirements. Rather than simply admire the beauty of orchids, why not cultivate some of your own! Trim size: 8 1/4 x 10 1/2.

A wonderful book, well worth the read. A lot of useful information, wish I'd had it a long time ago.

This book is useful for the beginner who already has some understanding of orchids. It assumes that the reader has some basic knowledge already. It's a good book.

"Orchids: Care and Cultivation," originally published in French, is a worthwhile addition to any orchid library, containing a wealth of information that both the beginner and hobbyist will find useful.

For each type of orchid, there is a general introduction followed by sections on light, temperature, humidity and watering, feeding, repotting and compost, and propagation, that provides specific details to augment the basic information covered in earlier chapters. Text boxes are used to convey the `bottom-line' information about each orchid, and to note other related hybrids or genera.

Though most of the introductory chapters are illustrated in colour, this section is replete with artistic photographs of orchid hybrids and species, mostly against black backgrounds, that highlight their intrinsic beauty and form. Each photo will leave you longing to acquire the orchid pictured.

Overall, Orchids: Care and Cultivation is highly recommended for its comprehensive discussion on basic orchid care and on how to grow many of the different types, and its excellent photographs. Those looking for new challenges will also enjoy learning how to fine-tune their growing practices, and about some of the more obscure orchids described. This book should find a place on every orchidist's bookshelf.
