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.

Wonderful article, Jay! Such beauties. I've never run across any orchids around here, maybe I need to try growing some.
