January 2021

For the Paph enthusiast in all of us, January features an article by Olaf Gruss on Paphiopedilum tranlienianum, just one of the many new species out of Southeast Asia described in the last decade or so.  This little gem, now readily available from seed-grown populations is a great addition for those will limited space, producing stunning specimens in less than 5-inch (12.5-cm) pots. For our lovers of stanhopeas, Love fragrant orchids?  Why not try your hand at a stanhopea or two.  You won't want to miss this feature article this month - you can almost smell them. January also brings two articles on modern cattleyas - one by Fred Clarke on Rlc. Rubescence and the incredible hybrids he's made with it and another by Matthias Seelis introducing the breeding efforts of Mr. Siam Noisuwan in Thailand who is producing those show-stopping big, bright cattleyas with massive lips we've started to see lately. Rounding out January, Clare and Johan Hermans treat us to a lavishly illustrated article on Léon Humblot and Madagar.
