It would be interesting to see if that group doing the artificial production would export flasks? Zambia's orchid horror might be our orchid opportunity.

Interesting, and I didn't know about it. According to one study, it looks like that they use fairly wide varieties of orchids; Disa, Platycoryne, Satyrium, Habenaria, Brachycorythis.

Glad they are sending out people to try and preserve the various varieties... sad that it is necessary though. As the world's population increases, this is a story that is becoming all the more common. Cool article though! I was familiar with salep, had never heard of chikanda though. Thanks for sharing!
