Texas Orchids

By Horntoad

When you think of orchids, you probably think of the tropical variety. They are often found in “big box” store garden centers or used in corsages. But there are 25,000 to 30,000 species of orchids in the world, and at least 10,000 of these grow in the tropics. Orchids have been found on every continent except Antarctica. There are even a few species that grow above the Arctic Circle.

I am endlessly amazed at the variety of structures and mechanisms that exist in the plant world!

The link for the pollination video is not working (at least not for me) so I looked it up & here is a link to the video.

Jay, I greatly enjoyed this article. Thank you.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
