Staff Pick! Surely one of the most useful orchid books to come down the pike in a long while is Bloom-Again Orchids by judywhite. Here is a book designed to correct an all-too-common condition: orchids that sit on windowsills and sulk without either growing or dying. By emphasizing plants that normal human beings can cajole into bloom and are likely to encounter in the marketplace, i.e., big-box stores, supermarket shelves, mall kiosks, florist windows, and of course, botanical garden gift shops, Bloom-Again Orchids is accessible and unique. It demystifies home orchid-growing in a very concise way, with an A-to-Z of 50 beautiful varieties, each one annotated with an easy-to-understand, 12-point checklist. - New York Botanical Garden
"With this book at your side and a little effort, you too can grow orchids that will be the envy of the neighborhood." - Gardening by the Book

Read a rave review:
"Afraid to grow orchids? Fear no more, because this book explains everything we need to know, from how orchids grow in nature (mostly on sides of trees!) and what we have to do to make them happy on the windowsill.
"judywhite is well-known in the orchid world for her wonderful way of explaining the mysteries behind how to grow orchids, and this book, which she also photographed (there are 300 gorgeous color photos depicting every genus in the encyclopediasection) is not only well-written, it is well-organized and covers everything from pest control to potting materials (the best resource on this subject in particular that I'veever come across) to light to getting the darned things to bloom again. The second half of the book is the encyclopedia section, describing not only species, but also man-made intergeneric hybrids, with a lot of information you can't find anywhere else in one place.
"I definitely agree with others that if you only get one orchid book - whether you are just a beginner or truly advanced - this is *the* orchid book!" -- Amazon.com Review
