Orchids

Welcome to the largest collected family of plants on the planet

Orchids are a huge family of plants with over 28,000 species across over 760 different genera, this makes orchids one of the two largest families of flowering plants on earth.

Orchids can be found in every continent except the Antarctic and can be found in all climate zones.  They can be found as terrestrials or epiphites and they do particularly well harsher and less forgiving environments.  There is an orchid for every environment.

Orchids are prized above all other plants due to the amazing array of flowers they produce and the longevity of the blooms, some like the moth orchid can last 6 months for an individual flower.  

 

Orchids also captivate collectors due to their ability to breed between species and create new flowers far better than either of the parents.  Orchid hybridizing is a large industry with and teh rewards of creating that new amazing specimen are significant.   As a result hundreds of thousands of hybrids have been registered over the past 150 years.
