Easy Orchids

When people ask me to recommend a good book for basic orchid care, I usually suggest Easy Orchids: Simple Secrets for Glorious Gardens–Indoors and Out by Mimi Luebbermann. With clear writing, the author demystifies orchid care, explaining what you need, how to buy, and essential details for some common orchids. Her aim is to prove that many orchids “grow as easily as daffodils.”

It’s got some beautiful photographs, and provides basic orchid info in clear, non-technical terms. Luebbermann has authored numerous other gardening books, and it shows in her straightforward style. She concisely summarizes orchid care for about 2 dozen commonly grown types. If you’re looking for help growing beautiful tropical flowers, give this book a try.
