Orchid Species Culture
Author: Margaret L. Baker and Charles O. Baker. In this meticulously researched volume, Baker and Baker have assembled a staggering amount of data about plants of the Oncidium/Odontoglossum alliance. Which species thrive only in the cool, humid conditions of the Andean cloud forests? Which are the lowlanders that revel in the relatively constant warmth? Which require a dry rest period in order to set flower buds? By combining weather reports and habitat reports with information from successful growers, the authors have formulated recommendations for approximately 1,300 species within this important group.
