Orchid Information, Misconceptions and Facts

It’s a common misconception that orchids originate only from tropical regions, this is mostly due to the popularity of tropical varieties which make up the majority of orchid species. In reality orchids are found the world over from south east Asia to Alaska and have successfully adapted themselves to every environment possible.

Popular cultivation of orchids really began in the 1800’s with the introduction of several tropical species. Since then growers have managed to produce over 200,000 hybrid varieties, some of which fetch hundreds of dollars for seeds or offshoots also known as keikis. This has made orchid growing big business in some parts of the world.

Another popular myth about orchid information is that all orchids are tropical plants, this is incorrect. Although tropical varieties are popular they are not the only type of orchids. Orchids were once considered difficult to grow but this notion is no longer so for many varieties.

Reproduction

Orchids reproduce either by keikis or by pollination. keikis are small plantaks that grow on a stem without a tag, you have to chance that they happen to come into contact with a pollinating insect. This is very rare and is a vigilantly undertaken job unlike the nearly perfect self-pollinating system of modern orchids.

If a flower does happen to pollinate a keiki it will produce a fruit called an iniphytea orchid which is exactly the same sort of orchid but instead of producing progeny of the flower it will instead produce a seed.

Scented orchids

Besides their obvious beauty some varieties of orchids have a specific, subtle scent. Some have a musty or spicy fragrance while other varieties have a sharper, more aromathetically pleasing one. These varieties range from the almost unnoticeable Lady- sideways to the Eater ofumes to the potentially overpoweringopedun common sighted Lady-anesa.
