'In this practical, well-illustrated book Brian and Wilma Rittershausen firmly dispel the myth that orchids cannot be grown successfully by the amateur gardener. Using nearly 100 colour pictures and 150 black and white illustrations, many in the form of a step-by-step guide to orchid cultivation, the authors offer sound advice on every aspect of orchid growing. There are sections on seed-raising and propagation, potting, after care, coping with pests and diseases, greenhouse equipment, growing orchids in the home and exhibiting the grown plants.'
