|About the Book|
There are orchid books available for the academics, the amateur collectors and enthusiasts but not for those who love and buy orchids purely as container plants. This book provides a simple, concise, easy to look and read guide - with no hang-ups. Orchids have long been considered expensive and difficult to grow but within this family can be found many easy to grow orchids that are more than happy to live in your home. The advent of central heating has seen the dramatic rise in popularity of the moth orchid as a houseplant. Discovered in the jungles of the Philippines, its elegant, arching sprays of white flowers shimmer in the breeze like fluttering, fragile moths. Far from fragile and now obtainable in a choice of color and size, it tops the popularity poll in the US, Holland and the UK. This book features this and many other easy-to-grow orchids.
