TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS by NARESH SWAMI
Calanthe whiteana King and Pantling – According to King and Pantling who described the species more than 115 years ago, “This is as yet a little-known plant, only a few specimens having hitherto been gathered”. The author during the course of study was able to locate the species from Sikkim as well as Arunachal Pradesh. The discovery and detailed in-situ study helped in updating the hitherto unknown characteristics of the species. The book, TERRESTRIAL ORCHIDS, presents the species in bloom, with its characteristics and habitat described in great detail and dimension.
