In "The Enchanted Orchid" Max Fulcher has brought together his talent for photography and his knowledge and love of the alluring blooms. This is not just a how-to-grow-'em book. It's an entertaining read - as warm and witty as the author - interspersed with his gorgeous photographs. Armed with camera and diary, Max has tracked orchids across Asia and the Pacific for two decades.
He recounts many of his orchid experiences on the orchid trail including how, in Burma, he happened upon the rare blue Vanda and why, with a $13,000 hole in his belly, he limped around New York in winter searching out moon orchids. There's also advice for the home grower. It also includes a chapter with tips on photography.
