Information for Authors
Published since 1932, Orchids magazine (formerly known as the AOS Bulletin) is among the many benefits of an AOS membership. Exploding with glorious full-page color photographs, each monthly issue is packed with topics of current interest for both beginners and advanced orchid growers. Our regular monthly features, Tom's Checklist, Spotlight, Orchid of the Month and Collector's Item, are eagerly awaited to inform readers of both familiar and unusual orchid botany and culture. Q&A is and always has been a favorite magazine feature. Packed between its covers, ORCHIDS contains feature length articles chosen to educate readers about the latest breeding trends, orchid habitats, orchid culture tips and techniques, international shows, nomenclature notes, conservation, native orchids and a broad range of topics of interest to the orchid enthusiast. We have great content planned for the months ahead. Join the AOS now - don't miss a single issue! Now available in an online electronic edition, membership in the AOS provides even greater value.
Bonus! We have another special supplement planned for 2013. Thirteen issues for the price of twelve!
