Orchidaceae subtribe Aeridinae

Currently focusing on the genus Vanda

About this website

This site is a work in progress, and an international collaboration between researchers working on this subtribe.

In early 2014, thanks to the generous support of the Swiss Orchid Foundation, based at the Herbarium Jany Renz at the Institute of Botany, University of Basel, Switzerland, and sponsored by Buehlmann Laboratories and Syngenta, Vanda content for this site was developed under the auspices of the Swiss Orchid Research Award 2013, given to Lauren Gardiner (from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew).

Renziana III: Vanda

As part of the Swiss Orchid Research Award 2013, in November 2013, the third edition of Renziana was published by the Swiss Orchid Foundation. Dedicated to the genus Vanda, the volume contains the most up-to-date classification of the genus, according to the new DNA-based phylogeny, and every species is illustrated. Over 110 beautiful full colour photographs are included, along with accessible articles in English and German on the morphology, distribution, ecology, conservation, about historical aspects such as the discovery and description of the first species and their introduction into cultivation and advice on the cultivation and growth of Vanda at home.
