Orchids in South Africa: A Gardener’s Guide shows new and existing growers how to care for their orchid plants. Learn how to treat your orchids (and most commercially available orchids are quite easy!), water and feed them, how much shade or light they need, and how you need to grow, maintain and propagate them to prosper and flower regularly. Many species are discussed in detail, and the accompanying photographs of the species and a selection of popular hybrids will help you identify the different kinds, and also show you what other species you may be able to grow in the conditions you are able to provide.

Orchids in South Africa: A Gardener’s Guide is an invaluable guide both for orchid growers in South Africa as well as other parts of the world . It contains chapters on orchids and their history; basic botanical information on orchids; general growing information and repotting and dividing of orchids.  Growing orchids is a fascinating and satisfying hobby. However, be warned that when you obtain your first orchid you will be blessed with an instant, life-long addiction to orchids!
