The second issue of Renziana is devoted to the orchid genus Phalaenopsis. Over the last decades, Phalaenopsis have become the most popular commercial orchids and house plants decorating thousands of window sills. Renziana readers will find professional advice for cultivation at home and commercial nurseries give insights of their artificial propagation methods. Like the first issue, Renziana illustrates the magnificent flowers of all wild species with colour images, supplemented by habitat photographs and information on the geographical distribution of the genus. In addition, an overview of the numerous natural and artificial hybrids is given. Finally, the importance of species protection in natural habitats, that are more and more reduced also for Phalaenopsis, is emphasized.
