Also included is a comprehensive listing of the growing requirements of the most popular varieties of orchids found in the tropics. This is invaluable for choosing the right plants for particular locales. The author is among the region s leading orchid scientists; this practical guide to orchid growing is based on scientific research and is written in a down-to-earth style that makes it easy to understand.
