Harold Koopowitz will be in Cape Town from 12 - 16 September to speak at the Cape Orchid Society's 50th anniversary Conference and Show.  This is something not to be missed.  There will be a huge number of local and overseas speakers at the conference. Not only will the talks be about orchids but include other indigeneous plants as well.

Have a look at their website : http://www.capeorchidsociety.co.za/view.asp?pg=conference&subm=conference

Is true.
Have any of you heard anything yet about the new clivia book coming from Briza?I'm hoping this one will have many pics of bookmark plants.There is definately a need from my side for more up to date book about the new breeding trends.What also bothers me is the small amount of SA plant pics in the Koopowitz book.Its basicly just Comstock and Conway plants.I understand why, and they are still admirable but...
In fact thinking about it they can bring out a new book every 2 years.

Briza are in the process of setting the book 'Clivias - Nature and Nurture' authored in the main by Dirk Swanevelder and with contributions by myself on amongst others named plants. It focuses on the six species, their habitat etc and has guides to growers, explains genetics for breeders etc. It will be lavishly illustrated and each species is illustrated by Sibonelo Chiliza with exquisite coloured pencil drawings especially commissioned. We await proofs. As soon as the book is ready to go to print their will be a call for pre-orders. We will keep you updated. The focus is South Africa but there is an international flavour.

Very good.  Especially since this is South African.
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK OF ME IS NONE OF MY BUSINESS.

I purchased the book Clivia from Amazon for R235.00, including shipping, because at Kalahari and Loot it is double or more this price.
