Our February issue features the fantastically illustrated second installment of Marsh and Szeszko's series on Barkeria Hybrids and the first part of a three part series by Carol Helen Beule on her journey crafting spectacular pots for Vanda (Neofinetia) falcata specimens entitled "Costume to Clay: My Journey from as a Designer and Nishi Bachi Artist." Also featured in the February issue is an article by Eng Soon Teoh on the use of orchids in herbal teas and an article by Olaf Gruss on the recently remade Phragmipedium Penelaus, a hybrid first made almost 130 years ago.
