What are facts about orchids?
The orchid flowers are one of the largest families of plants in the world. In fact, there are more than 25,000 species in the world that occur naturally, plus many more which have been developed by orchid growers. The name orchid comes from the Greek word orchis, which means testicle. They're named this because of the shape of their bulbous roots. The largest orchid in the world can grow up to 20 metres tall. Many orchids are native to tropical and semi-tropical regions of the world, including Asia, South and Central America. Some orchids are native to the UK. Orchids come in a rainbow of colours, including green and black. But the one colour you'll never see an orchid in is blue. The most popular types of houseplant orchids are phalaenopsis (moth orchid), vanda, paphiopedilum (slipper orchid), cymbidium or dendrobium (Singapore orchid). instersting facts about orchids?
