Gardeners Guide to Growing Orchids: A Complete Guide to Cultivation and Care
Gardener's Guide to Growing Orchids: A Complete Guide to Cultivation and Care
by Wilma Rittershausen, Brian Rittershausen
Book Description: Orchids are the movie stars of the flower world, but like movie stars, they have a bad reputation. Too complicated. Fussy. Weak. Orchids aren't difficult; they're just different. With more than 25,000 naturally occurring species, plus 100,000 registered hybrids from the last 150 years of breeding, orchids are by far the largest and most varied family of flowers on the planet. The truth is, anyone can grow an orchid. This book - the only orchid book to carry the authority of the Royal Horticultural Society - reveals how and where cool-, intermediate-, and hot-growing orchids can be cultivated at home. It includes information on watering, light and shade, repotting, propagation, pollinating, flowering, and controlling diseases and pests. 

The orchid enthusiast will enjoy the romance and excitement of the history of orchids, paired with the vivid and radiant colors of orchids on every page. Everyone, from the beginning orchid grower to the expert to the obsessed collector, will enjoy this stunning tribute to the world's most glamorous flower.

The Orchid Thief (Ballantine Reader's Circle)
by Susan Orlean [Fiction] 
Orchidelirium is the name the Victorians gave to the flower madness that is for botanical collectors the equivalent of gold fever. Wealthy orchid fanatics of that era sent explorers (heavily armed, more to protect themselves against other orchid seekers than against hostile natives or wild animals) to unmapped territories in search of new varieties of Cattleya and Paphiopedilum. As knowledge of the family Orchidaceae grew to encompass the currently more than 60,000 species and over 100,000 hybrids, orchidelirium might have been expected to go the way of Dutch tulip mania. Yet, as journalist Susan Orlean found out, there still exists a vein of orchid madness strong enough to inspire larceny among collectors. --Barrie Trinkle - Amazon.com
