Paphiopedilum appletonianum

Who we are. What we do.

Ever since it was founded in 1906, the Deutsche Orchideen-Gesellschaft e. V. (DOG) to promote orchid science and make it accessible to all interested parties. Wie unterschiedlich das Interesse an Orchideen sein kann, zeigen bereits die Mitglieder: Weltweit zählt die D.O.G. fast 3.000 Mitglieder – vom einfachen Blumenfreund bis hin zum Botaniker, Züchter und Großgärtner. They all use the offers of the DOG and are committed to the club’s goals. Everyone contributes their part: Be it as a collector of orchid motifs on stamps or coins, as a cultivator on the windowsill, in the showcase or in your own greenhouse, or as a filmmaker or author of books on orchids.

Das zurückliegende Jahr bot zwar wieder mehr Präsenzveranstaltungen als das davor, allerdings waren es bei Weitem nicht so viele Ausstellungen und Tischbewertungen wie in den Zeiten vor Corona.
