Default The Lost Secrets of Growing Magical Orchids

I want to tell you a story about a man who had a terrible case of
Orchid fever. He was obsessed with Orchids. This secretive orchid
hunter and cultivator devoted his life to their care and study. He read
everything, tried everything, and noted everything.
He succeeded in growing many a glorious hybrid but showed neither his
orchids nor his notes to anyone. Except once! Just once Anton
Thuranzsky allowed his 8-year-old daughter into his orchid house to see
his breathtaking collection.
When he died, his growing secrets would have died with him if his
daughter had not discovered his manuscript hidden underneath a
bookcase. Packed into her suitcase she took it with her as she left
Hungary for her new home in the US.
Written in his native Hungarian, it took her years of painstaking work
to translate, edit, test, update, and cross-reference his original
writing. And now, destined to become THE AUTHORITATIVE GUIDEBOOK on
orchid care, the book is finally ready.
