Orchid of the Week

Lepanthopsis astrophora

Da mir die Kultur in der Glaskugel, wie ich sie oben beschrieben hatte, auf Dauer zu aufwendig war, gab ich meine Lepanthopsis astrophora vor einiger Zeit an eine gute Freundin ab. Vom ersten Tag an habe ich das allerdings bereut.


Who we are. What we do.

Since its founding in 1906, the primary goal of the German Orchid Society (D.O.G.) has been to promote the science of orchids and to make it accessible to all interested parties.How diverse the interest in orchids can be is already shown by the members: Worldwide, the D.O.G. has almost 3,000 members – from simple flower lovers to botanists, breeders and large gardeners. They all use the offers of the D.O.G. and engage themselves for the association goals.everyone contributes his part to it: 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 even as a filmmaker or book author on orchids.

November 2022 traf sich der Bewertungsausschuss der Deutschen Orchideen-Gesellschaft mit all seinen Helfer*innen traditionsgemäß im BBS Nürnberg-Langwasser zur letzten Tischbewertung des Jahres. Das zurückliegende Jahr bot zwar wieder mehr Präsenzveranstaltungen als das zuvor, allerdings waren es bei Weitem nicht so viele Ausstellungen und Tischbewertungen wie in den Zeiten vor Corona.
