Growing Orchids at Home

The Beginner’s Guide to Orchid Care

Growing Orchids at Home provides expert advice for homebound flower fanatics.

 Orchids are one of the most diverse and proliferous groups of the plant kingdom, prized for the staggering variety of their appearance and fragrance. Growing Orchids at Home provides an authoritative but approachable guide to caring for these beguiling plants in your own personal abode. Bringing together their own botanical experiences with extensive research and experimentation, Manos Kanellos and Peter White address the most common issues that can bedevil orchid growers. They also identify warning signs for ailing flowers, and they offer diagnoses and treatments to ensure that homegrown blooms stay healthy. Kanellos and White focus on the types of orchids found most frequently in garden centers and supermarkets, accompanying the text with two hundred color illustrations. Blending biological expertise with accessible advice, this book is the only guide the aspiring orchid-head will need on their shelves.
