The books "Orchid Species Culture"

Two books (so far) concentrating on culture are available covering a number of orchid species. Each book also contains cultural information for orchids in general, extensive appendices on diseases, pests, nutrition, use of chemicals, and other subjects handy in the greenhouse.

The cultural information is in a format similar to the sheets available through the "Culture On Demand" service, giving habitat and climatic information of the plants in nature, as well as information from growers.
