The third issue of 2023 is out!
Did you know that orchids were already used as medicinal plants 5,000 years ago? The article “History of Orchids, Part 1” spans an arc from ancient China and Greece through the Middle Ages to the 18th century and tells of discoveries, desires, superstitions and wealth, of exotic, bizarre, mysterious blossoms in romantic, faraway places – in other words, of orchids.
Of course, issue 3 of our members’ magazine contains many other interesting articles on the subject of orchids. One of them deals with the culture of Maxillaria tenuifolia in the home and is available as a reading sample.
All D.O.G. members receive 6 issues of our magazine “Die Orchidee” free of charge every year. Just apply for membership here.
“Die Orchidee” is the bimonthly publication of the German Orchid Society, which all members of the Society receive. It contains articles on all topics related to orchids and is one of the most renowned publications in this field in the world. Those who are interested will find detailed travel reports from the natural habitats of orchids with high-quality site photographs, field reports on new cultivation methods, but also news from the taxonomy of orchids in our magazine. Furthermore, the “Pages for Beginners” offer practical tips and tricks for newcomers, which are also readily accepted by experienced orchid lovers. If you want to get an overview of our magazine, you can browse through the table of contents of the years in which all articles are listed. A sample of the last special issue Judging Results is also available for viewing.
In addition, we offer you the opportunity to read a sample of a complete issue online. (Attention, this is a very large file with approx. 17 MB. This is due to the high number of images and cannot be reduced!)
