In the enormous orchid family, the beauties classified as miniatures are among the most intriguing. These orchids, which range from under an inch or two in height to a maximum of 12 inches, can pack just as much flower power as their larger relatives, yet their compact size allows them to fit easily on a windowsill or under fluorescent lights. Steven Frowine profiles some 300 and lists another 200 by key characteristics, with information on the plant's geographic or hybrid origin; details about the flowers, bloom season, mature size and habit; ease of culture; light and temperature requirements; recommended potting medium; history; and tips for ensuring success. Superb photographs make identification a snap.
