About this book

The immense Oncidium/Odontoglossum alliance contains some of the most popular orchids grown, including members of the genera Ada, Brassia, Cyrtochilum, Odontoglossum, Oncidium, Psychopsis, Rodriguezia, Rossioglossum, and Trichopilia. Finding reliable cultural information for more than just a handful of the most commonly available species, however, can be a real challenge.

In this meticulously researched volume, Margaret and Charles Baker have assembled a staggering amount of data about these plants in an accessible format. By combining weather records and habitat reports with information from successful growers, the authors have formulated recommendations for approximately 1,300 species within this important group. The wealth of information provided in this book makes it an invaluable addition to the library of every serious orchidist.

Media reviews
There are no photos, but information abounds. This dense, technical, and detail-oriented work stands out in its field. -- Phillip Oliver Library Journal 20060601 A richly rewarding book for people who love orchids. Continuing in the same format as the previous volumes by the Bakers, it is straightforward, easy to use, and the information is highly accessible. -- Marni Turkel Orchid Digest 20061101 A wonderful contribution to the literature on how to grow these wonderful orchids and, like a dictionary, full of essential and otherwise difficult-to-obtain information. Every local society should buy a copy so that their members can take advantage of the wealth of information it contains. -- Mark Chase Orchids 20061101
