The Essential Guide to Growing Orchids in the Tropics is the first book on orchid cultivation to be written specifically for growers in tropical countries and to include advice on growing them in tropical lowlands and highlands, wet and dry climates, and in urban environments such as on balconies and indoors. The book will appeal to all types of orchid lovers, as it is structured with two main sections: step-by-step basics for those growing orchids for the first time; and more comprehensive advice for orchid hobbyists and those who wish to learn more about orchid propagation and hybridisation. Also included is a comprehensive listing of the growing requirements of the most popular varieties of orchids found in the tropics. This is invaluable for choosing the right plants for particular locales. The author is among the region's leading orchid scientists; this practical guide to orchid growing is based on scientific research and is written in a down-to-earth style that makes it easy to understand.
