Description
Orchids are the largest family of plants in the world, with 30,000 known species. To help you narrow your choice, this gorgeously photographed guide to choosing and growing orchids can help you quickly and easily find the ones that are right for you. The executive director of the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, William Cullina explains which orchids thrive on a windowsill, prefer artificial light, or need a greenhouse; which ones are tolerant of beginners or pose a challenge for experts; and which species within a genus are the best ones to start with.

"Cullina's informative guide ... tells what to look for in buying your first orchid. Much of the book is devoted to a list of common orchid genera, detailing more than 100 of the most popular ones.... Cullina, the author of Wildflowers and Native Trees, Shrubs, and Vines, also gives instructions on watering, light, potting, and fertilizing. This extensive guide includes a section on taxonomy and nomenclature and a glossary."Booklist
