Book: Botanica's Orchids
My comment for this book is simply fantastic. The book has more than 600 color pages with over 1200 species. This book is consider very cheap (US$16.47 if you bought from Amazon) therefore it is a must have book for both beginner and advanced grower.
This is not a how to book, which will teach you how to grow orchid. I consider this book as a reference book for orchid grower who would like to get a brief and general information about specific orchid. The color photo for each species helps identification. Even though the cultural information is very short but I think it is very useful. The book also shows some photo of orchid hybrid from several genera.
