Chapter 4 of my new book How Orchids Rebloom is called “The Top 10 Common Groups of Orchids.” I’ve found that the commonly available orchids you’ll encounter in a nursery, florist, or grocery store will almost always belong in one of the Top 10 groups. Sure, if you go to an orchid show or any tropical climate you will encounter many, many orchids not represented in the Top 10.
For each of the Top 10 groups, I generally describe the growth habit, native habitat, and basic reblooming requirements, as well as helpful hints to reblooming, what to do when your orchid is done blooming, and many other useful reblooming tips.
So I thought I create a blog post individually describing each of the Top 10 groups of orchids. More detailed information can of course be found in Chapter 4 of How Orchids Rebloom.
Here then are ten of my photos from How Orchids Rebloom, each one representing one of the Top 10 groups of commonly available orchids. Stay tuned – every few days I will create a detailed post on each of the Top 10 groups.
