Thumbs down Books on Orchid Propagation

Any recommendations on books about orchid propagation, specifically on orchids from seeds and meristem. I'm looking for something that tells you procedures/how to, not a general discussion. Any help would be great. Regards.

A book I bought at the weekend gives quite comprehensive details on flasking, Orchid breeding, pollination, propagation, and touches on meristem culture- which appears to be a highly complex an costly technique.

Orchid Care - a guide to cultivation and breeding By Walter Richter.

Got mine from an Orchid Stall for a Tenner.

I've seen it online for cheaper but they'll be P & P.

Good book for the price.

Micropropagation of Orchids is thorough but not for the faint of heart and definitely not for the short of funds. It's good if you really want to learn the nitty gritty of orchid propagation but overkill and a waste of money if you just want to know how it's done.

Might want to look for Asymbiotic Seed Germination of Orchids by Aaron Hicks.
