9781604690552: Bloom-Again Orchids: 50 Easy-Care Orchids that Flower Again and Again and Again

Orchids have a reputation as the divas of the plant world: fussy, difficult-to-grow plants that—on top of all that—are prohibitively expensive. But there are plenty of orchids that anyone can grow. Orchids are no more difficult than familiar houseplants such as the African violet, and can be made to thrive and bloom in average indoor conditions. You just need to know what makes them happy.

Bloom-Again Orchids highlights the easiest, most fuss free varieties and includes invaluable tips on where to buy orchids and how to keep them in bloom. Each of the fifty profiles focuses on a commonly available orchid variety and includes a description, photograph, chart of basic growing requirements, and a handy twelve-point checklist.

From the Back Cover:

Sure, orchids are gorgeous, but they make a lot of people nervous. “Aren’t they hard to grow? Can I get one to survive on a windowsill? How do I get my plant to bloom again?” The answers to these questions—any many more—can be found in Bloom-Again Orchids. Orchid expert judywhite has picked fifty of the most easily grown and widely available orchids and tells you exactly how to care for each one. Each profile includes a general description, photographs, and a chart of basic growing requirements (including light intensity, temperature, and potting needs). Especially useful is the handy twelve-point checklist in each profile that lets you know whether, for example, the plant can be grown on a windowsill or whether it needs frequent watering and feeding. An introductory chapter discusses the basics of orchid growth and care, and features “10 Best Tips for Growing Orchids.” Bloom-Again Orchids will turn you from a would-be orchid fan into the proud owner of healthy plants that thrive and bloom.
