Random orchid facts for August 7, 2009

Grammatophyllum speciosum is the largest orchid plant in the world.

Bulbophyllum globuliforme is the smallest orchid plant in the world.

Our vanilla flavouring comes from the pods of a leafy climbing orchid named Vanilla planifolia.

Though orchids sometimes grow on trees/other plants, they are not parasites. They only use the trees for support. They do not take nutrients from them.

Orchids are not "jungle plants". They are found all over the world. from the tropical jungles to the Tundra and to the Arctic Circle.

The seeds produced by orchids are the smallest among all the flowering plants.

Orchids are found on every continent except Antarctica and found in almost every color except black.

Google the word 'orchis' to see why orchids are of great interest to every male member of BF.
