Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881922080, Paperback)

This volume covers six popular orchid genera: Pescatorea, Phaius, Phalaenopsis, Pholidota, Phragmipedium, and Pleione. The Bakers' unique approach to orchid cultivation, which they document in
this 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.
