Description
With 30,000 naturally occurring species and over 100,000 cultivated hybrids, orchids comprise an extraordinary family of plants. Their exotic appearance, combined with the amazing variety of their form and color, however, has led to the belief that orchids are difficult to grow. In fact, orchids are completely straightforward in their needs and, given the right conditions, are extremely robust. This gorgeous guide is unique in that it both captures the allure of the orchid and reveals the secrets -- and the ease -- of its successful cultivation. Introducing Orchids first familiarizes readers with the simple growing principles, then presents more than 70 types specially chosen as ideal for beginners. Each featured orchid, skillfully photographed to capture all its wondrous qualities, is accompanied by a full description and practical guidance on its growing requirements. Written by two leading experts, Introducing Orchids will firmly establish the world's most beautiful flower as among the easiestand most rewarding to grow.
