Orchids are the most popular flowering indoor plants in the US (source: USDA).
The book has a fun, quirky, accessible style designed to appeal to the key orchid-buying demographic of women in their 20s and 30s living in rented accommodations, but is also authoritative enough to appeal to the older generation of 55+.
In-depth profiles of the most popular varieties include tips on the best spot for them; how to water, feed, and help flower; and how often to repot.
Profiles include vital statistics on growth habit, size, and botanical features.
Opening chapter covers general care and features illustrated step-by-step how-tos on choosing the right growing location, planting, watering and feeding, repotting, pruning flowering stems and roots, and propagating by division and from offsets (back-bulbs and miniature clones).
Feature spreads provide creative ideas for how to display orchids, whether single plants (for example, mounted on a tree branch), several plants (for example, grouped in a terrarium), or plants with downward-growing flowers that benefit from being shown in a hanging display (for example, in kokedama moss balls).
Includes an illustrated “find your orchid” directory.
