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’.
