Growing Australian Orchids

Growing Australian Orchids by Alec Blombery & Betty Maloney


An eminent authority on Australian native plants presents an authoritative outline on Australian orchids together with illustrations from a botanical artist with whom he has collaborated on many highly regarded publications. With beautiful colour plates reflecting Alec Blombery's extensive travelling throughout Australia and exquisite line illustrations from Betty Maloney, this book will appeal to all garden and botanical enthusiasts who want botanical rigour with photographs and line drawings enabling identification of species.

'Growing Australian Orchids' covers commonly cultivated orchids, epiphytes, terrestrials, and cool-growing and tropical types. A botanical key is provided to help in identification of both ephiphytic and terrestrial species. The most current botanical developments are covered including the re-categorisation of many of the dendrobiums into the new genus "Dockrillia".

The text discusses potting, watering, fertilising and pest control as well as general issues surrounding both cultivation and propagation.
