5 Interesting Facts About Orchids

Orchids are one of the flowers that cheer me during winter. I am very happy that they are more affordable now, and they are relatively easy to take care of.

Here are a few interesting facts about orchids:

1. There are more than 25,000 documented species of orchid, and scientists are finding more every day.

2. Certain species of Orchid can survive up to 100 years.

3. Size, shape and texture of leaves depend on the habitat. Orchids that live in dry climate have thicker leaves covered with wax, while species that live in warm and humid areas have thin, elongated leaves. Certain species of orchids do not have leaves at all.

4. Orchids do not have classic root. They have rhizome, tuber or aerial roots.

5. Orchids have a symmetry similar to human faces. Each flower is bilaterally symmetric, which means that it can be divided into two equal parts.
