|Summary, etc.:|| From the elegant, warmth-loving moth orchid to the perennially popular slipper orchid, Growing Windowsill Orchids tells indoor gardeners everything they need to know in order to grow these exquisite flowering plants at home. With more than thirty years of experience growing and writing about the many species of orchids, Philip Seaton shares his recommendations for choosing the best plant, looking after plants that have finished flowering, and encouraging plants to flower year after year. Step-by-step instructions demystify not only the watering and feeding process, but also repotting, composting, and keeping orchids free from pests and disease. For those who wish to know more about the science behind orchids, this sumptuous book covers the basics of orchid biology and conservation. Written in non-technical language and copiously illustrated with line drawings and full-colour photographs, Growing Windowsill Orchids is the perfect primer on everything the orchid novice needs to know to cultivate these perennial favorites in the home.
