Plant op the week - ORCHIDS

Flamboyant, intriguing, beautiful and exotic, Orchids have evolved to become one of the largest family of plants in the world. Orchid plants have often been called the elite of the plant kingdom. Orchids are closely related to the Lilies from whose type of flower the orchid blossom has evolved. Orchid plants are primarily herbaceous or evergreen perennials. Orchids come in different sizes from very small ‘Dendrophylax’ to the huge bamboo like ‘Arundina’.
