TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS by NARESH SWAMI
Cymbidium macrorhizon Lindl. – In the preface to The Orchids of the Sikkim-Himalaya, Sir George King mentioned collecting this species from the Rangeet Valley in 1879, thereafter the species was never found in Sikkim. Therefore this remarkable species was not described in their monumental book published in the year 1898. This author during the course of study was able to locate many habitats of the species from the region. The book, TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS, presents the species in bloom, with its characteristics and habitat described in great detail and dimension.
