How do orchids get sunlight?
Cool growing orchids like a min temp of about 10oC warm orchids like a min temp of about 15oC most orchids like to be watered once per week by placing under a tap and letting the water run through... A good tip is to place the orchids pot on an upturned flor pot this allows air to circulate well Most orchids don't like bright direct sunlight... A windowsill without direct light is often ok some…
Commensulism because the orchid is benifted from the tree Orchids are epiphytes, meaning they grow on the trees, but they don't get any nourishment from them. At best, the orchids benefit from being closer to sunlight, and from nutrients from bird/animals droppings from visitors to the trees, and from decaying vegetation that gets trapped against their roots. The trees really don't get any benefit, and they aren't harmed in any way by the orchids.
mushrooms are a type or organism known as a saprotroph meaning they feed of decaying or dead matter such as wood or leaves. they extract molecules from dead plant matter and use them in the same way as humans, without the need for sunlight. there are some types of plants (orchids) which survive the same way and do not need sunlight to grow.
Orchids grow in many different regions...The vast majority of orchids are tropical many grow in rainforests.... But there are also non tropical orchids Britain has many natice orchids which are not considered tropical and orchids even grow above the arctic cirlce in pategonia and on mariquarie island which is close to antaractica
