Description


“This beautiful book is useful for all of us, novice and experienced orchid lovers alike.” —Martha Stewart, author, entrepreneur, founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia
 

Add the vibrant colors and exotic blooms of orchids to your houseplant haven! It’s easier than you think with the help of Orchid Modern. Marc Hachadourian, the curator of the orchid collection at the New York Botanical Garden, shares his secrets to successfully growing these sometimes finicky houseplants. Besides the basics, you’ll learn his top 120 orchid picks for green and not-so-green thumbs. Ten inspirational, step-by-step projects, including terrariums, a wreath, and a kokedama, provide the confidence to make orchids a thriving, vivid part of your home’s signature style.

About the Author


Marc Hachadourian is the director of glasshouse horticulture and senior curator of orchids at the New York Botanical Garden, overseeing the cultivation of tens of thousands of tropical and temperate plants grown for conservatory exhibitions and permanent horticultural display. He also serves as the curator of the garden’s orchid collection and oversees the CITES Rescue Center Program for the garden, helping to take in and rehabilitate plants that have been illegally imported to conserve and protect endangered species.

Praise For…


“Marc Hachadourian shares his plant genius in such a gentle, helpful way that even those with no trace of green in their thumb can sort of, almost, kind of envision keeping an orchid alive. Better gardeners will learn how to cultivate orchids in a terrarium. Everyone can admire the nice pictures of these vexing, lovely plants.” —The Boston Globe

“This book will be the bible for people who cultivate orchids and for people who want to grow them.” —Garden Design Online 

“Marc’s engrossing and beautiful book about his passion—orchids—is useful for all of us, novice and experienced orchid lovers alike.” —Martha Stewart, author, entrepreneur, founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia

“Open this well-written, encyclopedic guide to orchids and discover the debunking of specific myths about this plant… wealthy with information.” —Booklist, Starred Review

"Marc’s new book teaches us not just which to grow and how, but also how to apply a mini-version of the signature showmanship and artistry of that big event to how we display plants at home…most of all, get some ideas for using orchids more creatively: no more just lining up those garden-center plastic pots on a windowsill.”  —Margaret Roach, podcaster and author of A Way to Garden

“A beautifully photographed history of orchid cultivation, with caring tips for the plants, and decorative projects for displaying them.” Gardens Illustrated

“A one-stop-shop for learning the art of the orchid.” —The American Gardener
 
“A well-designed, well-written, and a great addition to any orchid-lover’s home library.” —Plant Talk
