Orchid journey and orchid journey notebook
are now available!
For quite a while now, I've been looking for a place to write down my notes in orchid care. No matter how long I searched, I couldn't find anything that was quite what I wanted. So I made my own, Orchid Journey. Then I listened to your comments and improved that book, which ended up creating an entirely new book: Orchid Journey NOTEBOOK.
Both are notebooks, journals, trackers, planners... They are not picture guides with glossy paper. They are journals, made to be written in. See below which one is more suited to your needs.
Orchid Journey (Care Guide Tracker and Planner)
In this beginners journal, you can write down observations about each orchid (up to 5 orchids for each genus: Phalaenopsis, Dendrobium, Cattleya, Cymbidium, and Miltoniopsis) and track the progress of each. With space to track 25 orchids (and 5 bonus ones), you can keep a detailed journal of what is important for you.
Everyone's environment is different; orchid care changes depending on where you live. You learn (by trial and error) what is the best method or technique to fertilize, but come next year, it slips away. By writing down the information you learn, you'll improve your orchid care. Less testing and more results with what has proven to be true in YOUR environment. The most important words in this journal are yours.
There's more... Did you ever want to go to an orchid show but come time to go, it's been over for weeks? The dates just keep slipping by. So, I've also included additional pages for you to keep track of Orchid Shows, Expositions, and New Books that are launched. As an orchid enthusiast, also I couldn't leave out pages for the famous "wish-list", since I never stop at just a few orchids.
With a summary of the basic care for these top 5 most bought orchids, you can personalize your care and see your orchids grow more each day. If you like to keep track of daily activities, then this journal will help you track your watering cycle, fertilize regime, hours of sunlight, and much, much, more.
Orchid Journey is a 369-page personal tracker and planner --available only on Amazon in paperback-- made you you to deepen your knowledge in orchid care as you experiment with different types of care for each orchid. Call it what you'd like-- journal, diary, notebook, observation tracker-- is where you'll take your learning to the next level. If you are a beginner, this one is best for you!
ORCHID JOURNEY NOTEBOOK
In this version of the notebook, I've taken out all the care guides and added pages to keep track of not just 30, but 100 orchids. This is strictly a notebook/journal and is suited to any and all orchid genera that you like. It has no information, which is great because you already know the care guides, so no use wasting precious paper.
Although both are technically journals and trackers, Orchid Journey NOTEBOOK is a formatted notebook containing all the important parts of orchid care that you'll need fill out. This book is strictly a tracker and planner.
Because this one is only 200 pages, it is also cheaper than the first one. Hooray!

Quick Care Reference for Each Orchid:
Forgot what humidity Cattleyas like? Turn to pages 35-47 because it's all there. With general guides for the 5 types of orchids, you have a hands-on reference to use all the time.
Besides the specif guides for each, other general categories that revolve around orchid care are explained: Humidity, Lighting, Fertilizer, and Potting Medium.

No more loosing post-it notes, note-cards, or papers that get misplaced. Keep all your orchid care notes--dates of orchid shows, wish-list, orchid books, and podcasts-- in one easy place.
Track Your Watering & Fertilization Schedule

Consult Care Guides Quickly
Having a hard time remembering what the temperature range was for each orchid? This journal has 5 detailed care guides (that are easy to follow) at your fingertips so you can refer back to general guidelines anytime.

With space for detailed notes up to 30 orchids, this journal urges you to expand your orchid collection. When you are just beginning, it's easy to buy the same orchids. Add new orchids to your wish list, eliminating impulse buys.
With so many online guides, each person saying to try this new method or that new technique, it's hard to know what works for you.
That is why you have to test and experiment with the methods that are suitable for your environment. How do you remember all that over the years? With this journal, you can keep all your notes and progress. (How many months ago did you fertilize anyway?) With this tracker, you'll better visualize what works and what doesn't, eliminating the methods that didn't work for you.
