"Orchid Planet" - the only Russian magazine on orchids and exotic plants.

Orchids amazing flowers, the symbol of romantic and special joy of life. The orchid flower keeps the mysterious charm! Look at it - it seems that it came to us from a fairy tale. At all the times growing and selling of orchids considered beneficial - the orchids were presented to empress and to noblemen, businessmen and to people of art. Sometimes it is not a very cheap present, though it is quite feasible to buy an orchid nowadays. Although the one shall remember that some of them require special care.

For Russia orchid flowers are not new, but still not so many people cultivate and grow them in Russia. However, it was noted that number of people willing to get orchids in their collection of houseplants or in their small gardens is rapidly increasing. Export of orchids in our country for the last three years increased by 14 times!

The main topics of the magazine are the botany history and discovery of plants; description of orchids and their habitats (the difference between natural orchids species and hybrids), travels and trips; ecotourism (orchids photo-excursions), means and methods of growing the plants in house (where to buy orchids and how to care, as sometimes the plants require special care).

Welcome to "Orchid Planet"

Our consultant
Stepanov Nikolay Vitalievich, PhD in biology. His business sphere is systematization and geography of plants. He dreamt to be biologist since the early school times and was growing and cultivating almost everything, but as it is known it is impossible to "bind something unbounded". Mr. Stepanov travels a lot and sees in plants the live creatures, which are able to feel and sense the feelings. He is most interested in finding the common language with plants, and in learning to understand them. In that sense orchids are the most mysterious creatures. Sometimes it is too complicated to speak with them. But once the one can understand these plants, they will surprise with significant flowers, original view, non-typical behavior. Our consultant mostly likes the Paphiopedilum and Cattleya species. As the follower of systematization of plants, Mr. Stepanov tends to have in his collection almost everything which is possible. At present his collection accounts to 250 species and sorts of orchids.
