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, content for this site was developed under the auspices of the Swiss Orchid Research Award 2013.
