9780881921892: Orchid Species Culture: Pescatorea to Pleione

This volume covers six popular orchid genera: "Pescatorea, Phaius, Phalaenopsis, Pholidota, Phragmipedium," and "Pleione." The Bakers' unique approach to orchid cultivation, which they document inthis book, stresses the importance of main-taining climatic conditions similar to those in each species' native habitat. The ingenious climate tables created by the authors provide precise, usable information which enables the grower to adjust growing conditions--length of rest period, temperature, humidity, amount and timing of water and fertilizer--to approximate those of the species in the wild. The weather data is supplemented with information from successful growers.Published at $32.95Our last copies available at $16.49
