Easy to read, well organized, and covers topics of interest to this beginner including soil mixes, sterilizing soil, potting, maintenance, rooting leaves, and hybridizing. I'm very happy with the purchase of this book.

This book is very basic. There is also a section at the back of the book that describes some of the varities, but there aren't any pictures. I would not reccomend this book.
