    Aerides are very special orchids and these photos just help to prove this fact to be true. AL

    This may not be the proper place for the following comments, and I certainly don't want to hurt any feelings. Especially since I don't know the details of the situation or anything about the culture of the countries involved.

    That said, I always feel uncomfortable reading stories like this. Orchids are in decline around the world for a number of reasons. I suspect two of the chief reasons are expanding populations and climate change. I have read on a number of occasions that a contributing factor to the decline in many areas has been the collection of wild orchids (legal or otherwise) and their subsequent sale along the streets, perhaps in small stands, to resident and vacationing passerbys. There have also been occasions where rare orchids, illegally collected, have been placed on internet auction sites. Believe me, I can appreciate the temptation to purchase unusual orchids at very low prices. I also understand the importance of these sales in supplementing the income of some families. And I fully acknowledge the difficulty in knowing whether an orchid is collected in the wild or grown in a nursery.

    Still, when I read of stories like this, I can't help but imagine the pressure placed on orchid populations resulting from large numbers of individuals, acting over generations, collecting wild orchids for sale in this manner. (And this says nothing of the manner of collection: perhaps cutting an entire tree down to collect a plant.)

    As I say, I'm an outsider, but stories of this sort always strike a nerve with me. I just had to get it off my chest. Sorry for the rant.

    P. S. I also have this species, which was purchased from a reputable orchid nursury. It won a blue ribbon in its class at our recent show.

    My Odorata is still in spike. I've been watching it develop for some time. I cannot wait for it to be in bloom...but until then I can stare at your flowers and drool. Gorgeous!
