Frightened? Confused? On January 19, 1997, Erich Michel from Hoosier Orchid Company, will calm our fears and help us with a discussion on "'Seed Propagation of Orchids". This is a version of the talk that he presented at the World Orchid Conference in Brazil several months ago. If you need to know how to pollinate, flask, deflask, grow in community pots, and grow to full bloom, come January 19 to the CBG. Erich Michel is the operations manager at Hoosier Orchid Company in Indianapolis, Indiana, and has heen growing orchids since His main field of interest is biochemistry and microbiology--both useful for growing the darn things. Erich will bring plants for sale. If you have any special requests, call him at (317) , and he will bring your ordered plants to the meeting. Hoosier specializes in unusual species, so get out your wish list and go crazy. Have your display plants and sale plants in place by 12:30 PM. Bring food--baked goods, that is! The cold will make us hungry. We need the calories to keep warm. Leftover fruitcake is O.K, too. LOIS

3 2 ILLINOIS ORCHID SOCIETYNEWSLETTER JANUARY 1997 The President~$ Message by LEO SCHORDJE (847) The Christmas Party was a success! We had more food than ever before; there was even a little left over. Thanks to everyone who brought a dish. Thank you also to I Gene Hausermann, Dana Harrison, and Lynn Hausermann, and the rest of the crew for being our hosts again this year. A good time was had by all. I love talking to everyone. The diversity of our Society is one of its beauties. I ended up in a lively conversation whose topic was comparing orchid conservation and then later language education sysetems of Nepal versus Sri Lanka(unrelated topics but the same 2 people). Thiru, we are going to miss you when you go back home later next year. We have members who come to us from all parts of the world. By getting to know them. you can get insight into what the rest of the world is like even if you can't travel. With the January meeting it is time to start thinking about the Mid-America Orchid Congress and the IOS Spring Show in April. So far the planning seems to be coming along fine thanks to Sue Golan & Jim Spatzek, cochairmen of the events, and their able helpers--jodi Hirt, Sherry Maloney, Linda Shubert, and Carole Thompson. When you are called to volunteer, [ hope everyone saysz'yes" ami gives a hand. This is an enormous Wldertaking and Sue & Jim will need help from all of you.

4 3 ILUNOIS ORCHID SOCIETY NEWSLETTER JANUARY 1997 October "Mini Cattleyas" Fall Mini Show & Chicagoland Festival Q&A Orchid We have not received any questions this time but my fingerswere too itchy to stay quiet. Therefore, I thought it might be useful for anyone changing his setup to measure the light in various places where plants are placed. I found in one of the books, the following procedure for measuring light intersity: Put a white sheet of paper at the level of the leaves, facing the light source(lamp or sun). Set the light meter of a camera to 25 ASA and shutter speed to 60. Aim the camera at the paper, making sure that you see nothing but the paper. Read the exposure setting indicated by the light meter and convert to foot candles using this table. F-Stop Foot Candles If you have questions for this column that you'd like answerea, ~occ6~iuents tha y()u want to share, send them to: Orchids Brazil# Eric Ladtor 311 Albright Vernon Hills, IL Fax; (847) IOSIOSI0510S IOS-IOS-IOS From Onegf our registrant's program speakers for the Mid America Orchid Congress is Sergio Englert, of Riesel Orquideas, in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Four AOS awards to Bill Rogerson during the competition year, to say nothing about the Rose Bowl. Seven AOS awards in just the first half of the competition year!! (At $30 per pop, Bill is now a major benefactor of the Awards Quarterlv joumal-where these awards are published). Of the bunch, the Cattleya maxima alba awarded in November is my favorite...even if it's not purple! We brought 109 plants to the November meeting--72-greenhouse & 37-underlights. There was no Plant-Of- The-Month in the lightstand category.. But, in the greenhouse category, Sue Golan's Neolehmanii P9rpax took that honor. This is the genera formerly know as Epidendrum porpax.(aii it needs is a clonal name. Oh, say, 'The Artist'). We are halfway home with this year's competition and it's still a race in lightstand land. Here's a hinlsend just as many plants as you can to away shows starting early in January. Sure, bring you plants to our Spring Show, but remember, we're h~~t!ng.the Mid-American and someoftlte best growers in the country will be in attendance...you'll be up against it But the blue ripbons you earn at the away shows count just as much as the ones at our show.

7 6 ILLINOIS ORCHID SOCIETY NEWSLETTER JANUARY 1997 ~'.- Ken Vrabel 51 Chris & Rene Welch 17 Susan West 31 (*) indicates new member for pur-poses of the :7 Competition Year. QUIZ This time I owe you complete answers for the last 2 quizzes. The first quiz dealt with the evolutionary advantage of combining the pollen into a few pollinia. The second dealt with the evolutionary advantage of having only one pollinating insect. There are 2 major advantages to combine the pollen 1. 1to pollinia(i figured out a third advantage last month but forgot it in the meantime): 1. All the pollen gets delivered efficiently to the target; none is wasted; and, 2. All the combinations of gametes get an opportunity of expression which allows for greater variation and thus better adaptation. These advantages come at a great price which is the risk of losing it all. If one pollinia is lost, 50% of the possible progeny and 50% of the possible combinations are lost. Therefore, the process of minimizing the pollen evolved together with a mechanism to ensure the delivery of the pollinia. Different genera solved this problem in different ways. In may genera, glue was "added" to the pollinia which maintains the pollinia glued to the insect for many hours if not days. In other genera, plants had an advantage if they were not frequented by insects. Too many insects that visit many different flowers would be more likely to lose i their"'preciolls cargo. If only one insect pollinates me orchids, those i insects would not frequent other f" flowers andare:}!l'l;o~ likely not to i lose the pollinia.some orchid i genera developed mutualism with their pollinators(like Angraecum), providing them with rich nectar that other insects cannot get. Others take advantage of the pollinators' behavior during the pollination season(e.g. Ophrys, Oncidium). Yet others abuse their pollinators by setgting up.a trap. that ensures proper delivery of pollinia on the stigma, and'proper placement of the pollinia on the insect. An additional advantage enjoyed by plants that are pollinated"gy a sin~e pollinator is tfiat the fower is arranged according to the morphology of the insect which also ensures proper placement and delivery of the pollinia. It is very important to realize that the risk of combining the pollen into pollinia and the risk of using only one pollinator come into play any time that the environment changes. For example, Cynorkis uniflora is a species from Madagascar that produces nectar in a spur that is accessible(almost) only to hawkmoths with very long tongues. However, this species suffers from many thieves that such the nectar but do not pollinate. The balance of pollinators to thieves changed drastically as a result of deforestation and fragmentation of the forests in the native habitat. That species is now endangered because its flowers are robbed of their nectar by insects that previously did not penetrate the thick forests. The same may have happened to our Cypripedium, and may still be happening. though we do not know for sure. Thus, the processes that offered advantages to orchids during their evolution also rendered them more susceptible to htiman disturbances. Even if the iiilnlediateenvironment appears not to have changed, subtle differences may tip the balance against species that are susceptible. This time we have received only 4 answers; one was not exactly correct; two were precisely correct and the fourth may be correct(i will know better when I can decipher the hand writing). Therefore, the chance of-winning the GRAND prize of a $10 gift certificate had been 1:2 or 1:3. This is much better tl}anthe 1:10 in Fhelottery. So what are you waiting Tor? Enter Quiz #3. GOOD LUCK!!!!!! QUIZ # 3 Which 2 orchid genera have unisexual flowers? Most orchids are hermaphroditic-having the male and female parts in the same flower, but these two have either male or female flowers. Send your answen to: ERICLADROR 311 Albright Ct. Vernon Hills, IL or, to: or, fax to: (847)
