Who we are. What we do.

Ever since it was founded in 1906, the Deutsche Orchideen-Gesellschaft e. V. (DOG) to promote orchid science and make it accessible to all interested parties. The members show how different the interest in orchids can be: the D.O.G. has almost 2,500 members worldwide – from the simple flower lover to the botanist, breeder and gardener. They all use the offers of the DOG and are committed to the club’s goals. Everyone contributes their part: Be it as a collector of orchid motifs on stamps or coins, as a cultivator on the windowsill, in the showcase or in your own greenhouse, or as a filmmaker or author of books on orchids.
