Beginner's Handbook For Orchid Growing In Hawaii

. Kudos to past-president Ted Green and all who assisted in the years-long effort to compile and produce this wealth of information about growing our orchids in the varied environmental conditions of Hawaii. 8 1/2" x 11", 42 pages long, it contains many line drawings and photographs. There is also commentary on numerous aspects of orchid growing that had not been addressed earlier. Copies are available in garden shops on Oahu.
