I've not heard of that one, either Mindy.

My favorite book for orchid info is called "Orchids to Know and Grow" written by two professors from the U. of Florida, Thomas Sheehan and Robert Black.

My favorite book about orchids is, "Orchid Pests and Diseases" from the American Orchid Society. It's a great diagnostic tool.

I have the book. Very basic beginners book. Very few black & white photos. If you are just starting with orchids, it shows the basics, but there are better books out there.

I just need some knowledge right now about how to take care of my 3 orchids so hopefully I don't kill them.
