It is important to note that the data in the above table has not been absolutely proven.  Keep in mind that orchids themself, determine when they bloom, and this is dependent upon environmental factors.  The biggest factor is indoor versus greenhouse growing.  To best determine the flowering season, one must research the orchid of interest.

About the Authors
Steven A. Frowine
first started growing orchids under lights when
he was in high school. Since then, his love and sometimes obses-
sion for orchids has continued to grow. He has tended orchids pro-
fessionally as a horticulturist, when he worked in Hawaii at the
National Tropical Botanical Garden and at Missouri Botanical
Garden, where he was Chairman of Indoor Horticulture and man-
aged one of the largest orchid collections in the United States —
over 10,000 plants. Steve’s greatest pleasure from orchids, though,
has been growing them in his own home under lights and in win-
dowsills, which he has done now for over 40 years.
Steve has a B.S. and M.S. in horticulture from Ohio State University
and Cornell, respectively. He has had a long and rich career working
as a professional horticulturist for premier botanical gardens in the
United States and as an executive at top horticultural businesses
including W. Atlee Burpee Company, White Flower Farm, and
International Gardening Products. Steve is sought out as a lecturer
and has delivered hundreds of lectures throughout the country. His
presentations are noted for his excellent photography, his knowl-
edge of the subject, and his sense of humor. He has appeared on
various national TV shows and writes extensively, authoring many
articles for horticultural trade and consumer magazines. His
second book,
Fragrant Orchids,
will be released in the fall of 2005.
Steve is now president of his own horticultural consulting firm,
where he works with various horticultural companies on marketing
and public-relations issues.
The
National Gardening Association
(NGA), founded in 1972, is a
national not-for-profit leader in plant-based education. Its mission is
to promote home, school, and community gardening as a means to
renew and sustain the essential connection between people, plants,
and the environment. For more information on the National
Gardening Association, visit its Web site at
