A great guide for beginners to Orchid growing. Helpful information about diseases, pests, how to water orchids, repotting, how to determine ideal light level, care instructions for most common varieties,and more. Also includes beautiful pictures and an encyclopedia of Orchid species and info about them.

I do wish that some information had've been left out or at least expanded on. They include info about Orchid propagation, but they make it seem much easier than it actually is and don't include any practical info about actually doing it. Anyone who takes the books advice on this will be dissapointed. Besides small things like that, my only other complaint is that it's not particularly well written, including but not limited to uncorrected spelling errors and grammar issues in some areas.

Overall a great beginner guide to learning about Orchids and their care. Would recommend to anyone getting into Orchids.

I absolutely love this gem of a book. It provides excellent information about: the history of orchids; their botany; where/how to grow many species; care and cultivation (including propagation, routine care, and pests & disease); and, information about 21 "popular" orchids & 22 "specialist" orchids. I find this book to be an extremely useful resource. I especially love that it has countless pictures illustrating the text. This book's coverage of orchid propagation is excellent and thorough. I also found this book's detailed information about Laelia, Masdevilia, Stanhopea, Zygopetalum to be extremely useful and missing from many other orchid books. Other orchid species of which info fills several pages include: Dendrocilum, Gongora, Mexicoa, Ophrys,...... (and the list goes on). I refer to this book and Understanding Orchids: An Uncomplicated Guide to Growing the World's Most Exotic Plants frequently because the information they both contain is clear, easy to follow, and tried-and-true. If you are an orchid collector/grower you should not hesitate to add this book to your gardening/orchid library - you will love it!

This is a beautiful book with wonderful pictures and loads of information. But the print is very small, about the size of a lawyer's card. As I get older I don't want to have to use a magnifying glass to read. So I'm ordering another orchid book hoping the print won't be as tiny.
