While this thread may subsequently sit elsewhere, let's start it here for the moment.

Many folks have asked about the information available on orchid databases such as Orchidwiz and Wildcatt. The AOS has also just offered up its own subscription service.

Anyone who uses these databases is invited to offer his or her views and criticisms. They're not cheap and potential buyers are best served if they understand exactly what the various products and services are best suited for and how they're best used.

If you've used any, please discuss its/their strengths and shortcomings; or if you're interested in purchasing, please list specific questions about features and best usage that would help you to differentiate the products.
