Use Orchid Map™ to Find Orchids

Guest Author - Susan Taylor

The makers of OrchidWiz™ have put together a new internet site called Orchid Map™ which has a great deal of great information for orchid enthusiasts. In the United States, you can input your zip code and then choose to find:
. nurseries
. societies
. vendors of greenhouse equipment
. orchid judging centers
. orchid art
. orchid boutiques
. orchid conservation groups
. orchid flasking labs
. speakers
. supply vendors
. private collections
. public gardens

When you choose one of these functions, you will also see a list on the right which allows you to easily navigate if there are multiple locations in the same area. You will get the name of the nursery, for example, with a link to their website, if available, and directions on how to get there. You can filter by area of the country or city in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, UK and New Zealand, or by country for South Africa.

They also list orchid related functions such as shows which are coming up in your area. Each location listed also has directions to the event as well as a link to the society which is sponsoring the event for detailed information. This is a great way to keep track of what's coming up in your area so that you won't miss any shows. There is also a related website, Orchid Agenda™, which only has information about shows that can be used by area of the country. This last site is only for the United States.

There is a linked area for orchid photos posted on several boards on the web with some really nice pictures of orchids grown by fellow enthusiasts. These are very interesting to see and you can go directly to the sourced of the posting through the links. If you are looking for information about orchids, you can find some good forums this way.

In addition, there is also an area for information posted on the web from all over which mentions orchids. Some of these can be fascinating scientific discussions and others are simply mentions about societies or art exhibits.

All in all, the site is a very useful tool for orchid growers and vendors. Societies and vendors can input their own information so that others will be aware of their products. Growers will be able to use this as the basis for trips to local vendors. If your area is not well represented, make sure that you tell your vendors and societies about the website!
