A Subscription to the Award-Winning ORCHIDS Magazine –Incredible Articles and Stories, Full-Page Photos, Native Orchids, Q & A, and Much More!

(AOS Membership is the ONLY way to get a subscription)

An industry favorite since 1932, ORCHIDS magazine (formerly known as the AOS Bulletin) is just ONE of many benefits AOS members enjoy. Exploding with glorious FULL-PAGE color photographs, each monthly issue is PACKED with topics of current interest for both beginners and advanced orchid growers.

Get your hands on your monthly copy of ORCHIDS Magazine and discover:

  • Exclusive information on both familiar and unusual orchid botany and culture.
  • Hidden gems showcased in the following monthly features: Tom's Checklist, Spotlight, Orchid of the Month and Collector's Item including solutions to the most common problems both beginner and experienced growers face.
  • The BEST growing practices used by the top orchid growers in the world!
  • Packed between its covers, ORCHIDS contains feature length articles chosen to educate readers about the latest breeding trends, orchid habitats, orchid culture tips and techniques, international shows, nomenclature notes, conservation, native orchids and a broad range of topics of interest to the orchid enthusiast.
  • An exciting advertisement section chock-full of the current sources of orchid plants, supplies and products of value to orchid growers.
  • An in-depth look into a specific topic in our annual BONUS issue...What started as a way to publish an article that was too big for a regular issue of ORCHIDS (Phil Spence’s comprehensive look at the Latouria section of Dendrobium) has become an eagerly anticipated bonus issue of the year. A separate publication gives us the opportunity to present a monograph to our members each year without compromising the general interest of the monthly issues.

Plus, in ADDITION to the printed publication, ORCHIDS magazine is available to all members digitally as well! So you can get instant access to the content on any device with an Internet connection - anywhere, any time.

What Our Members Are Saying About ORCHIDS Magazine…

“I would spend a fortune (and a lot of wasted time) to try to get this kind of quantity and quality content elsewhere."

“I was excited enough to email you at 2 AM after not being able to put down the latest issue! The articles were amazing. Also, there just seemed to be so much great content which allowed me to get so much more out of the issue than you expect from a magazine. I would spend a fortune (and a lot of wasted time) to try to get this kind of quantity and quality content elsewhere.”

Laura DeCarlo, Melbourne, Florida

“I stopped what I was doing and read it cover to cover!"

“‘WOW’! The layout, the photos, and the articles are simply outstanding. I stopped what I was doing and read it cover to cover! I feel like a broken record here, but once again you all have produced a terrific magazine. 'Orchids’ seems to move from strength to strength each month.”

Tom Etheridge, Corvallis, Oregon

“I wanted to sincerely applaud the most recent issue of the magazine! I love, love love the way you displayed the different growing set ups and culture techniques from different climates. A fabulous idea and very well executed! Love it!”

Rhonda Heide, Jupiter, Florida

“What a masterpiece! Wonderful photos and brilliant stories about pollination of orchids.

Holger Perner, Sichuan, China

“I have to tell you that my husband and I think it is a beautiful and worthwhile magazine. It is the only magazine that we get that we immediately read. (We have been growing orchids for about 15 years, and have about 500 of them in a greenhouse.)”

Eleanor Phillips

“Just had to write and compliment you on the April Issue. I have never seen so many gorgeous illustrations. I think the overall quality of award photography has really improved over the past few years. I know this must make your job harder now. Instead of the good ones simply floating to the top, you have to actually make some hard decisions! :-) Every issue is good, but this one is a standout. Really great. ”

Anita Aldrich, Galveston, Texas

“ Rarely have I been so riveted by an article in Orchids as I was by Keith Davis' "A Ghostly Pursuit." Paired with "Hidden Jewel" it was a reader's delight. Thanks for publishing them, and please do more inspiring adventures like that. ”

Claudia Goodridge, New Haven, Connecticut
