Need a book recommendation

Post by Vitaly Taras » Mon, 26 Jun 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

I recently saw a rather interesting book at NY Bonanical Garden shop -
it's quie thick and contains detailed climate descriptions of various
orchid habitats throughout the world. Given a species name one can look up
the native growing region and see the weather condition for the entire
year in that area.

I didn't buy the book, thinking that it might be overpriced, but didn't
write down the author and title either. Can anyone recommed such source?

go to http://www.orchidculture.com
See if the books here are not the ones you were looking at.  There are
several books specialized for genera, i.e Dendrobiums, Paphs, etc and you
can also find a per culture sheet deal where you buy only the culture sheets
for the orchids you need...except for those species that are covered in one
of the books.
