My amatuer gardening career spans a period of 40 years. In all that time, my interests did not include orchids until about 3 months ago. I purchased one plant and decided I needed to find a book for novices. Orchids Simplified is a wonderful book for a beginner. I found the book well organized, highly detailed without being boring or overly technical. The author displayed his great knowledge, devotion to orchids and delightful sense of humor throughout the text. In my opinion with the suggestions of the author, I will make fewer mistakes (but definitely make mistakes) because of the information contained in the book. The photographs are beautiful and I appreciated a glossary of terms and definitions.

The photographs here are gorgeous and cover a wide range of orchids. The writing is down-to-earth and easy to read. It offers some sound advice on both culture and how to set up good structures for growing orchids. It doesn’t have much illustrations of orchid diseases and symptoms though. All and all a very enjoyable book.

As an accredited rose judge, I love beautiful flowers and recognize good photos when I see them. So many books seem to try to make gardening hard, or in an effort to simplify, edit out information that a reader would need to know. Mr Jaworski has side stepped those pitfalls, penning instead a consise book chock-full of stunning photos, served in tandem with good advice artfully delivered to the reader. The information contained between its covers was consise and to the point. New to orchids, I am now successfully growing and blooming cattleyas under lights after reading. Well worth reading and I highly regard this book

The photos are beautiful and the advice useful. I especially liked the table on how to guage footcandles of light. It made it easier for me to measure how much light I was getting in my apt. I also like the section on building your own light stand, but I was disappointed that the information on artificial lighting was scant. There are good step-by-step photos on repotting and I like the advice on how to revive a plant just shipped. This is a good book for a beginner because it adds fuel to your enthusiasm and curiousity and the photos make you drool with envy.

I enjoyed this book and think that any orchid lover will find something useful. The photographs are very nice, with lots of closeups. The text is well-written and easy to read and covers a wide variety of orchids and growing situations. As the Orchids host at, I read a lot of books and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this one to any beginner.
