Height : 49 cm to 124 cm. Origin : world wide Environment : humid places, over trunks or rocks Climate : warm and humid
Notes : Most Orchids grow in tropical or subtropical areas. Only 15% of them grows natively in temperate climate areas. The tropical species of Orchids often have fleshy aerial roots equipped with a radical veil that allows them to capture the humidity in the air. Mediterranean Orchids instead are earthly species with underground roots. Although Orchids feature sophisticated strategies to ensure pollination by pronubal insects, their reproduction can happen in both sexual and asexual ways. Orchids can adapt to most environments, except for glaciers and deserts. Several Orchid species are saprophyte (they take nutrients from decaying organisms).
