Publisher's Summary

Would you like to know how to grow and care for an orchid?

To many people, looking after an orchid is a mystery. I was one of those people. I didn't understand why my orchids weren't blooming, and if they did, why the blooms would last just weeks rather than months. I've experienced my share of joys and frustrations growing this gorgeous flower. I've read numerous books, talked to experienced growers, and watched many tutorials on how to grow and care for them. Through these years of learning and experimenting, I've been able to replicate the long blooms and eradicate the premature losses.

This book is designed to help complete beginners grow, care for, and ultimately understand the orchid.

Here's a preview of what you'll learn:

  • The different types of orchids
  • The easiest orchids to grow for beginners
  • Which tools to use for orchid care
  • The ideal conditions for optimal orchid growth
  • How to pot and repot your orchid
  • The pests and diseases to look out for
  • Why blooms fail
  • My top tips to orchid success
  • Further orchid resources
  • And much more!

A guide to help with Orchids

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
The information provided is good, sound, and true. I have raised several orchids and what is discussed in this book is what everyone should know before they start. The book is a quick listen and is organized in a format that is easy to comprehend, it does not cover all topics in depth.
While the narrator did an ok job, I could hear background echo noise, which made me believe the studio may have been at fault.
Overall I would recommend to any Orchidist or those looking at growing them for the first time.

Good book for beginners not much detail

I was hoping for more specific tips history and how to force blooming or trick it into blooming or maybe some more on diseases.
