About the Director

Originally from the Midwest, David Stanley has always had a fascination with science and even studied biology at Michigan State University. His interest in orchids turned into a lifetime passion as he became a collector. In his own words, while pondering a premature mid-life crisis, Stanley realized there was more to life than punching a clock and waiting for the weekend.

He chose to work for himself by opening The Orchid Wrangler in March 2001, a retail orchid shop on West Third Street in Los Angeles. Specializing in the gift delivery of these unique blooming beauties, The Wrangler s orchids have graced the homes of Madonna, Sharon Stone, Rene Zellweger, and Brad Pitt. Last year, The Orchid Wrangler was voted Best Florist on Los Angeles City Search. David s work has been featured in the New York Times, Distinction & Sunset magazines and he has dispensed his orchid knowledge on national television shows like WE's Mix It Up! and USA Network's Style Posse.

The longer he operated his business, the clearer it became to him that everyone loved orchids but most people had little understanding of and many misconceptions about them. He set out on a quest to educate and inspire the world on the ease of raising orchids by producing Orchid Secrets Made Simple, the first instructional DVD on orchid care. He adopted the term wrangler from the film business, as a play on the person who is called upon for special expertise handling animals on movie sets. His ultimate goal is to turn thumbs green!

This is a "must have" instructional DVD for all those who love orchids and need to know the basics of how to care for these beautiful plants.
I learned so much on how to water, prune, re-pot, and encourage a "second blooming" just from my initial viewing. David Stanley is a great instructor, and not only takes time in explaining the various steps in growing orchids, but he also shows how it is done.

I belong to the Central Coast Orchid Society based in Cambria, CA, and watched the video at a regular meeting recently. I've belonged to this organization for almost 10 years and have viewed many orchid videos over the years. I believe this is the best basic orchid care video I have ever viewed. In addition, the "Wrangler's" presentation style and organization was very pleasing. This video is a "must see" for anyone who has ever hesitated to purchase an orchid plant because they think orchids require extraordinary care; they're no more difficult to care for than any other house plant.

Books are too difficult, too much information! This is an easy HGTV-type program that demonstrates everything you need to know to keep orchids growing and blooming.

We saw the author at an orchid show but failed to purchase the dvd then but when I saw it on Amazon much later I decided to make the purchase. Very informative.
