Facts About Orchids:
Orchids have the largest variety of flowering plants with an estimated of 20,000 to 30,000 naturally occurring species .
Orchids are seen growing in all the continents except Antarctica.
In 1856, the first man made Orchid was cultivated.
There are 2 species of Orchids growing in Australia and 3 species in the Arctic circle, growing underground plants with their flowers shooting up above the soil.
In order to achieve pollination, some Orchids of the genus Ophrys (called bee Orchids) bear flowers resembling female insects in appearance and smell. Male insects are attracted to the flowers and attempt to mate with them, thus pollinating the flowers.
The bloom time or the life of an Orchid depends upon the type of Orchid in bloom.
Phalaenopsis are among the easiest and most rewarding Orchids to grow.
The Orchid genus, Vanilla, is commercially important, and is used as a foodstuff in flavoring as the vanilla essence.
Orchids are among the most highly prized of ornamental plants.
