LED lights are certainly the way of the future but finding accurate information on these lights and growing orchids can be difficult.  A'na Sa'tara walks us through foot-candles, lux and the light spectrum useful to plants and that relationship to LED lights.  David Rosenfeld continues his series on historical "orchid personalities" with his informative article on Harry Veitch, John Dominy and the Veitch family of Chelsea.  Also in this issue, Clare and Johan Hermans update us on an exciting Taiwan Orchid Growers Association–led project for the World Orchid Conference in Taichung, Taiwan highlighting ex situ conservation through the gathering of data on orchid genera in botanic gardens and other curated collections around the world and Soraya Cates Parr continues her series on the terrestrial orchids of Middle Tennessee.
