The Orchid Review

March 2016

In this issue Rudolf Jenny considers the work of Costa Rican Alberto Manuel Brenes and plants, such as Campylocentrum brenesii, that were named in his honour. Also, Peter Sander explores how the orchid industry is adopting sustainable practices in wholesale production. Meanwhile, Phil Spence explains how he finally crossed Pleione with Coelogyne, creating a hybrid that has eluded growers for many years.
