1. There is a brand new Orchid Ark film on endangered orchids made in collaboration with Barry Natusch, Professor in Media Studies, Nihon University, Tokyo:
The film is a free resource to be used for education.
2. I saw this book on Thai Bulbophyllum orchids on sale at the Airport Central Plaza in Chiang Mai. From the already low 425 Baht it is now on sale at 290 Baht. The text is entirely in Thai but it has scientific names and superb colour illustrations, written by orchid enthusiast Khun Salin Sitisuchatom. Published in 2010.
3. Right now there are many fantastic orchids flowering at Dokmai Garden: Vanda denisoniana, Vanda flabellata, Dendrobium anosmum, Pomatocalpa spicatum and the latest addition, not yet listed in our collection: Aerides krabiensis, kindly donated by Orchid Garden Khaolak:
