Orchids have always had a massive specialist following among collectors, but with the new easy-care hybrids, even beginner gardeners are becoming seduced by the exotic splendors of orchids. This latest addition to our popular Gardener's Guide series dispels the mystery surrounding the cultivation of orchids while bringing the descriptions of plants right up to date for specialists. The orchid group includes around 750 genera and 17,500 species, with an even larger number of hybrids; this book, therefore, is a guide to the best varieties. Authors Wilma and Brian Rittershausen clearly describe modern methods of cultivation to reveal that new hybrids can be grown in much the same way as other houseplants, without the need for a greenhouse or any other special equipment. Readers will enjoy a splendid combination of expert cultivation advice, up-to-date lists of cultivars, and beautiful photos.
