This book, compiled with a skillful eye by Bruce B. Brown, clearly identifies and exploits a niche market in a highly clever fashion. Brown, an orchid grower of many years experience, avoids self-aggrandizing by compiling a book of pictures and insights from the far reaches of the globe. Where most books of this kind focus on a single person and their results, often heavily influenced by the money they're able to throw into the hobby, Brown and his colleagues' working tips cover the spectrum of knowledge in a way that no single person could achieve. The scope of the book is remarkable, the pictures utterly breath-taking. A must have for all growers, yet accessible enough for anyone who enjoys this haunting horticultural phenomenon. Happy reading and satisfaction guaranteed!
A wonderful and informative book filled with gorgeous pictures and a wealth of information on the care of these beautiful plants.
This book captures not only the beauty of orchids, through the outstanding photography displayed, but also the amazing breadth of the orchid family. There are familiar genera, yes, but also a petting zoo of lesser known samples of this incredible plant family. This book is a must for beginners and experienced growers alike, who enjoy both looking at and learning about orchids.
This book is packed with stunning, original photography of orchid blooms. They are arranged gracefully on the pages, each one complimenting the other. The growing instructions found within the book make me a better grower. I found the book worth the cost and highly recommend it to everyone interested in orchids.
