The Swedish Orchid Society magazine

The Swedish Orchid Society magazineI have not had a whole lot of time to write lately, and I have had soooo much to write about too! There is so much blooming over here right now that I have not had the time to photograph them all. But I have a pretty good reason for it. I am very pleased to announce that I have been entrusted with both the layout responsibilities, as well as editor-in-chief position, for the Swedish Orchid Society magazine “Orkidéer”. The October issue just went to the printers on Thursday, and the magazine has received a makeover and a whole new layout. It has been a very big job, but at the same time very exciting and rewarding!

As the new editor I hope to get a chance to work more closely with other Orchid Societies and magazines, as well as writers, photographers and orchid enthusiasts from all over the world! I hope to make this magazine a great source of both inspiration and knowledge, and I would love to hear about your ideas for material. If you are really passionate about a particular genus or species that you are growing, let me know. Or perhaps you, or someone you know, has seen or is growing  a new or really unusual species, and would like to write about it? Tell me about your orchid-hunting trips, greenhouse projects, propagation stories, hybridization endeavors – you name it, I am all over it! Obviously I will help with the Swedish translations…

I really hope to hear back from you! It would be great fun to learn what is going on in the orchid world from many different perspectives, and to hear what you are passionate about when it comes to orchids. The diversity, in both plants and passions, is one thing about orchids that is so incredibly amazing.

Thank you!

    Congratulations Karma. I would be very interested in reading that magazine. I think there needs to be more documentation on cultivating dracula and lepanthes species. Just because there is zoo many species and many still being found. Would be nice to see some in-situ reports on them. 🙂

      Thank you! 🙂 Information about membership (subscription) can be found on the Swedish Orchid Society website. Personally I would also like to read a lot more about Dracula and Lepanthes too, especially in-situ as it is some of my favorite genera. The magazine needs to be broader however…
