Really helps a beginner to understand and handle their orchids. Even covers the more difficult varieties like the vanilla orchid. Really glad I bought this book

I expected more information. I had hoped for a book that had more than basic information. This book is really good but is more for a beginner. I also had hoped for specific information on the care and culture of the various orchids. This book was only a brief overview of orchids. I am off to find a book a little more for a person who already has a few dozen orchids and wants to know more in-depth information. Thanks.

Got The Orchid Whisperer to keep from killing any more orchids. It is well researched, easy to read and gives lots of information. Gave me enough confidants to purchase another orchid.

This is the best book on orchids that I have ever seen, and I've seen a few. Being the proud owner of only one orchid for many years, I am still a beginner at growing them. There is lots of information about diferent varieties as well as many photos. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to try their hand at growing orchids.
