Don’t let these delicate blooms fool you, orchids are able to survive in multiple environments.

Orchids are also an amazing plant species to study, due to their ability to survive in such contrasting eco-systems.  Found in both desert environments and rainforests, the orchid thrives in many environments.  Orchids have adapted and evolved in various environments to survive and reproduce.  In result of this continual evolution, orchids grow in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes!

The Exotic Orchid

Orchids are known to represent luxury, beauty and stregnth.  This exotic ornamental plant was also a symbol of virility in ancient Greece!  The ancient Greeks believed that if large, new orchid tubers were consumed before a marriage was consumated, the wife would become pregnant with a male.  How fascinating!
