From selecting the right plant to providing proper growing conditions, Orchids for Every Home is your complete handbook to keeping your orchids healthy and blooming. Starting with the most popular orchids that require the least care and progressing to more high-maintenance flowers, this practical guide is organized to help you find the orchid that is just right for you and the conditions in your home. You'll learn about 104 different orchids, including Phalaenopsis, Miltoniopsis, Aygopetalum, Brassia, Dendrobium, and many more. All plant profiles include:
  • A description of the plant and its flowers
  • When and how often it blooms
  • Where to site it
  • Watering and other care instructions

  • In addition, a troubleshooting section helps you identify problems--such as sunburn, viruses, mealybugs, and red spider mites--and shows you how to quickly and efficiently deal with them. Both beautiful and practical, Orchids for Every Home shows you just how easy it is to grow these exquisite flowers.
