Editorial Reviews

Austin-American Statesman
...A straightforward, instructional work with a number of helpful appendices and dozens of detail shots of orchid blooms.
Houston Chronicle
...particularly useful to the beginner or avid orchid growe alike.
Alice Joyce
Kramer brings his considerable expertise to bear in this instructional book about growing "warmth-loving" orchids, plants especially well suited to the southern regions of the country. All sorts of orchids are described, but Kramer concentrates on optimum conditions, culture, containers, and other needs for the specific orchid hybrids he features. He does a fine job of answering questions that someone new to orchid growing might ask, definitely motivating any southern gardener yearning to grow orchids either indoors or in outdoor situations. Includes lists of plant suppliers, equipment suppliers, and books. Color illustrations of 200 recommended orchid varieties included.
