In his book, "About Orchids – A Chat" published in 1893, Frederick Boyle describes the "harvesting" of O. crispum from Colombia. The collector would make Bogotá his headquarters from where he would need to travel "about ten days to the southward" by mule. On reaching his destination, he would "hire a wood; that is, a track of mountain clothed more or less with timber" from a tribal chief. a b c d e f g h i j Margaret L. Baker & Charles O.

The immense Oncidium/Odontoglossum alliance contains some of the most popular orchids grown, including members of the genera Ada, Brassia, Cyrtochilum, Odontoglossum, Oncidium, Psychopsis, Rodriguezia, Rossioglossum, and Trichopilia. Finding reliable cultural information for more than just a handful of the most commonly available species, however, can be a real challenge. In this meticulously researched volume, Margaret and Charles Baker have assembled a staggering amount of data about these plants in an accessible format. By combining weather records and habitat reports with information from successful growers, the authors have formulated recommendations for approximately 1,300 species within this important group. The wealth of information provided in this book makes it an invaluable addition to the library of every serious orchidist.
  • I love Baker's books on orchid species culture. It's all the information that experts are always haranguing beginners to learn about species: "Know where it comes from! Learn its preferred temperatures! Lowlands or alpine!" Alas most beginners haven't a clue where to look for this kind of information other than the same old reference books that keep reprinting the same old outdated and sometimes outright wrong stuff. Use this in conjunction with Harry Zelenko's Oncidium book for easy identification, and you're all set to grow any oncidium alliance species that might come your way.

  • Don't expect any identifying photographs in this book...there are none...this is for the serious orchid grower written in Textbook format of every known species of Oncidium/Odontoglossum...very dry , very boring....very detailed

  • This book is for the serious student of orchids, whether neophyte or experienced grower. It covers 87 genera in the Oncidium/Odontoglossum alliance, and provides a wealth of cultural information, based on the genus' origin and habitat. If a grower knows the altitude, day and night temperature fluctuations, humidity, rainfall patterns, light requirements, etc., of a plant, (s)he stands a much better chance of growing (and blooming) it successfully.

    In addition to providing all of this information, the book gives plant size and type, whether the plant has a stem or pseudobulb, describes the leaves, inflorescence, and flowers, including size, number of flowers per inflorescence, and whether or not they are fragrant.

    There is a discussion at the beginning of Cultural Recommendations in "captivity": light, temperatures, humidity, watering requirements, fertilizer, rest periods, growing media, cultural problems, etc.

    This is not a picture book. The only pictures are the eight on the dust jacket. But there is invaluable information between the covers for the person who wants to excel at growing and blooming orchids.

  • This bulky volume contains a stunning amount of gathered information about (micro-)climate, habitat, distribution, flowering time, sizes and colors of plant parts about virtually every Oncidium alliance botanical species that exists, updated to present taxonomical insights. A wealth of knowledge for every grower or breeder that likes to try his/her hands on some Oncidium alliance botanicals. An amazing achievement of the authors and a very valuable posession!

  • ...when you're of the belief that it's important to try and recreate the environment a plant came from in order to successfully grow an orchid, well, this book has it all...terribly interesting, the varied micro climates each species has...

  • A very useful book for an orchid lover! Provids a lot of information for the culture of the named orchids. No Fotos!

  • Good book
