Orchids or orchids (scientific name Orchidaceae) are a family of monocotyledonous plants that are distinguished by the complexity of their flowers and by their ecological interactions with the pollinating agents and with the fungi with which they form mycorrhiza.

The family comprises about 25,000 species (some sources report 30,000), and perhaps another 60,000 hybrids and varieties produced by flower growers, making it one of the families with the highest species richness among angiosperms. They can be recognized by their strongly symmetrical flowers of symmetry, in which the middle part of the inner whorl of tepals - called lip - is deeply modified, and the stamens are fused to the style, at least at the base.



Pruning and care

          In case of disease or fungal decay, cut slightly beyond the infected tissue to help stop the progression of the infection.




          In summer, open the windows for air to ventilate. This causes the evaporation of water and the elimination of carbon dioxide. The air breeze will make               your plant overflow with life.

         In the winter (or in the summer, on windless days) use a fan to ventilate your orchids. Turn it occasionally.
