September 2018

In the September issue, Bill Thoms discusses Bulbophyllum amplebracteatum subsp. carunculatum (Bulbophyllum carunculatum) and some of its hybrids in a beautifully illustrated article. Rudolph Jenny presents Phaius daenikeri, a horticulturally desirable species from New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Samoa and Benjamin Crain introduces us to the orchids of Palau, an island nation nestled between the Philippines and New Guinea.  If you like habenarias, Leon Glicenstein compares the newly named species Habenaria janellehayneana. Although newly named, it is not new to cultivation, having masqueraded as Habenaria rhodocheila 'Rose', 'Hot Pink', and even the "snapdragon flower" for some time. For those of you looking for something you don't have to repot, fertilize or water, M. Lokeswara Rao extolls the virtues of orchid stamp collecting.Rounding out the September issue, Franco Pupulin and Lizbeth Oses discuss Masdevallia chasei in this month's installment of The New Refugium Botanicum and Tom Mirenda completes his two-page essay on Chinese cypripediums in the Genus of the Month. Sue Bottom discusses the causes of leaf reddening and Peggy Alrich and Wesley Higgins introduce us to Flora and Sylva in this month's Orchids Illustrated feature. Remember the movie In the Heat of the Night?  Did you know that the most important scene in the movie took place in an orchid greenhouse?  You'll want to read Arthur Chadwick's Parting Shot revisiting the movie and its relationship to orchids.
