Dear Rogier ... I write articles of interest for entertainment and education for orchid related non-profit clubs and publications to present to their memberships. May I have permissions to use your orchid images to expand on what normally would be available to these memberships. I do not receive any monetary renumeration for my articles and will duly note the image copyrite. Thanking you in advance ...

Hi Rogier,
I am working on a simple Handbook of Sikkim Orchids for educational purpose. May I have image of Bulbophyllum thomsonii good enough for printing? It will be duly acknowledged. Also that of Tylostylis discolor if available. It has no commercial interest.

Beautiful photos, especially the ferns. They are my primary interest. I was impressed to see the Angiopteris madagascariensis.

Dear Rogier

I recently stumbled upon your site, while I was searching for the rarer orchids of Turkey.
What Superb photography!
I am planning to go to Side in Turkey in mid May this year, with my wife, and we would love to see such rarities at H montis-Tauri, H Compariana, Cephalanthera, kurdica, Orchis Spitzelli, really any of the orchids on your Antalya Site

We are members of the Hardy Orchid Society, and some of the members have been to Turkey before, but mainly earlier than the flowering time for the orchids mentioned
Any assistance in locating orchids in Anatalya at that time of year would be greatly appreciated.

I do not expect my photographs to be as superb as yours!

Your Sincerely Stan Jordan

Dear Rogier,

Found your site while looking for some Bulbophyllum IDs. Lots of fantastic pictures, as a fellow photographer I truly appreciate seeing so many quality orchid pictures as even good photographers often don't get orchids right.

I discovered your website now, and I'm delighted!
I have a community about orchids, created on 17 March this year, in the G+
'm not orchidophilic the'm in love with these exuberant flowers and I have some at home (especially the Phalaenopsis).
I quoted your link in a posting on the Neofinetias, so they can see their photos.
And then I saw that your link is much more: a whole universe about orchids!
Congratulations for your wonderful work!
I will make a new post so that community members can meet and also researching other genres.
I am Brazilian, psychologist and passionate about orchids!

Hoi Rogier,

ik wilde ook Pinguicula vulgaris kweken en zodoende kwam ik bij jou terecht. Mijn website is kweek inheemse kleine planten. Ik heb ook een veentuintje met bv.teer guichelheil en uiteraard zonnedauw. Ik woon niet in de buurt van Soest. Heb jij een tip of idee hoe ik aan gekweekte exemplaren kan komen? Misschien kan je opsturen, zou wellicht geweldig zijn! Groetjes, Jan Willem
Carol Cromie 07-Mar-2012 01:39
I am studying orchids for my carved glass series, I wish to show orchids in motion. May I please download the photos for reference? I would be pleased to list credit for inspiration at any showing, but they will be transformed, and quite the science fantasy feast for the eyes, much as I find your photos to be! Thank you so much for sharing! Regards, Carol
Jacqueline Henrot 05-Mar-2012 13:35
Actually, you might have also Dendrobium imitator in the hortus... The holotype is 'Leiden cult. (de Vogel 2049) LC 911105'.
Cheers, Jacqueline

Hello Rogier: Beautiful collections of photos and so great for the public to be able to view them.
A request: I am documenting the flowering plants endemic to Brunei for the Brunei National Herbarium and would love to use the 4 pictures of Coelogyne bruneiensis for my report and possibly for an official publication at a later stage. Also, there is no herbarium material for Coelogyne bruneiensis in BRUN, could it be possible, when the holotype flowers again, to collect some material to send to Brunei ? There are 4 other orchids endemic to Brunei,I doubt they they would be in the Hortus (no photo in your galleries) but who knows ...
P.S. I am now based in Leiden.

Dag Rogier,
Schitterende foto's heb je op je site staan. Bij "Galanthus" staan ook enkele foto's van Galanthus woronowii 'Leidens Green', bij de Galanthofielen in NL en B is dit echter een onbekende cultuvar. Kun je iets meer over deze cultuvar vertellen ? Is dit een eigenselectie van jouw, of ben je die bij een kweker of hobbyist tegen gekomen?

Where are you based Roger? I would love to meet you to discuss orchids of the Indian Ocean.

Hallo Rogier,
ik ben bijzonder geïnteresseerd in de photo van het cyrtochilum species.
Weet je nog waar je de photo hebt genomen? Of waar de plant vandaan komt?
Is het mogelijk mij de photo toe te sturen zodat ik hem kan vergelijken met andere species?
Dank bij voorbaat,

goedenavond Rogier,

Na mijn zoveel wekelijkse stage uurtje bij Wubben in de kas en de aanschaf van een paar Oncidium gerelateerde planten, ben ik alleen even aan jou vergeten te vragen of je even de titel van het boek op te schrijven waar je het over had (over Oncidiums), kun je dit misschien even mailen?
Mooie foto's, Nog even en we kunnen weer op zoek naar inheemse orchideeën!
Met vriendelijke groet,
RJ Reeze

ambtshalve ben ik op zoek naar 'sprekend' foto-materiaal van de waardplanten van bacterievuur (waar we in West-Vlaanderen een sensibiliserende folder rond willen maken)
in uw collectie steekt een mooi detailbeeld van blad en bloesem van Mispel

zou deze foto kunnen/mogen gebruikt worden voor hoger vermeld niet commercieel doel?

beste groeten
Richard 08-Apr-2009 08:54

Rogier, doen. Ga naar Iran. Ik was er in 2001. Heb als vrouw gewoon 's avonds in de stad gelopen. (was wel in het noorden). Ik kwam via Google een foto tegen van onze gids Moshen. Hij had ook een tweedehandsboekwinkel in Teheran. Kwam ik Nederlandse boeken tegen. Rosetta reisbureau ben ik heel tevreden over. Kleine groepen.
