For me it has been a slow and long process and I'm still learning after more than 50 years. Now with the changes in taxonomy I'm afraid it'll take another 50 years just to catch up with the changes. I wish I had Orchidwiz but it's not compatible with my Mac. If you are really serious you can't go wrong with Orchidwiz. Or course there are the books, the encyclopedia, orchid publications and the good old local orchid club and societies ..... and this forum.
