The Orchid Review

September 2016

In this issue Ruth Bone takes a Eulophia sampling trip in Zambia and reveals that cake made from chikanda tubers is so popular it is leading to a depletion of the tubers. Also, Ong Poh Teck describes an encounter with a sweat bee that he observed pollinating the flower of a Coelogyne rochussenii, in Peninsula Malaysia. Jean Stowe and Rudolf Jenny report on the RHS Chelsea and Hampton Court Palace Flower Shows, while Chris Barker reviews the International Orchid Show at Malvern.
