Orchidarium is a magazine about orchids and their environment, with the firm purpose to create a base of culture and education, starting from the base that many orchid lovers know how to grow an orchid but know just a little about their life, circumstances, curiosities, and history. In this magazine you’ll find a mix of all that to make you not only grow orchids but also can speak about them.

The Swiss Orchid Foundation annually publishes the Renziana, a bilingual (English and German) orchid journal of around 100 pages, which is developed in collaboration with renowned scientists, growers and enthusiasts. In each issue, different aspects of a genus are highlighted, such as the morphology, taxonomy, geographical distribution, ecology, history, conservation, cultivation and breeding of the plants. Probably the most interesting part for our readers is the chapter about the current taxonomy, where the classification of the plants according to the latest scientific results is shown, and each species of the genus is illustrated with a high quality colour photograph. In addition, you will find stunning pictures of the plants’ natural habitat, of hand-coloured drawings from historic books, of hybrids, and detailed distribution maps. A distinctive feature of our journal is that almost all of these pictures can be downloaded from the website of the Swiss Orchid Foundation.

The Journal of the Hardy Orchid Society

The Journal started life in July 1996 as a quarterly Newsletter consisting of a number of duplicated A4 sheets. After seven issues the format was changed to an A5 booklet, and in January 2001 a full-colour centrefold was added. In October 2003 the format was again improved to permit full colour printing and the name was changed to “Journal of the Hardy Orchid Society (JHOS)” from the January 2004 issue. Throughout this time the Journal has informed the membership of all the recent news and planned events of the Society. JHOS publishes diverse articles (mainly written by HOS Members) covering an enormous range of relevant topics. A complete listing of the Contents of all Newsletters and Journals is maintained. When journals are four years old they are made generally available as pdf which can be downloaded from within the archive listing on the web site. An index to article subjects and authors is kindly compiled and updated annually by Colin Scrutton, a former Chairman of HOS.
