Chiloschista lindstroemii

Thomas Jacob

Vor einem Jahr erhielt ich eine Pflanze, auf deren Etikett “Chiloschista viridiflava” stand und die bereits einen Blütenansatz hatte. Als ich Fotos von den kleinen gelben Blüten in der Facebookgruppe der D.O.G. postete, meldete sich eines unserer Mitglieder prompt und ließ leise Zweifel aufkommen, dass dies nun schon die zweite falsch gelabelte Chiloschista viridiflava ist, die ich mir zugelegt hatte


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.

Of course, issue 3 of our members’ magazine contains many other interesting articles on the subject of orchids …
