Orchid Flower, Colors & Growing Plants

 

look real great and they come in almost all colors, including white but not black. One of the most popular is a blue orchid, in the past and prior to the hybridization they were extremely rare but now designed in the laboratory plenty of colors are available which nature rarely has shown.

Blue vandas are most also certain dendrobium have blue color elements in the flower. White flowers also look good, especially in combination with other flowers as wedding floral decorations, not only within a bouquet.

Today nothing can hold you back to buy orchid since are easily available, just see our pictures of dendrobium, cattleya, oncidium, mokara, vandas and other. After two centuries of poaching and looting of wild plants in their natural habitat the creation of hybrids gave nature a real break. No need for poaching anymore just go to the internet or have a look in the nursery.

The Greek word "orchis" which gave them the name

means testicle, about 26,000 species and hybrids are out there and this count is growing continuously because the laboratories try to develop new form and behaviors. E.g. to have a longer blooming time, make them resistant to certain fungi and creating new colors.

There are certain preferred colors  which is white, blue and all variants of red. White is often use to enhance elegant wedding bouquets.

All come from one family  called orchidaceae, the plants grow in the tropical regions but are also are found in higher and regions.

Labs are crossing hybrids

continuously for more color combinations and to be more resistant. Hybrid orchids are common today, actually any plant on the market to buy today are hybrid orchids, most are better to handle than species. It is not a big problem anymore to keep blue orchid flowers since todayís plants are relatively cheap and widely available. Means they are easily to be replaced by a new plant from the nursery or the internet catalogue when there is a problem. Although they can be found almost everywhere all over the globe but the real beautiful flowers come from tropical or subtropical regions.

 
 

Some wild orchids grow there on trees, in the rain forest, mangroves and in the rock crannies. Most are half-terrestrial and epiphytic orchids. This plants can be divided into monopodial and sympodial groups. Monopodial orchids like vanda and aerides are growing upwards from a single point and the flower appear atop a long stem. Phalaenopsis, though this is stem less. The sympodial group like Cattleya and Laelia can growth in several directions, but with cattleya, its only one direction.

Blue Orchid plants

are the most prolific, thousands of varieties are out there in nature and thousands more being created by cross breeding. About 600 new varieties are coming up each year either through the discovery of new species or the creation of new hybrids. The largest types are Dendrobium, Phalaenopsis, Cattleya and Vanda.

They can grow in just about any environment and the majority of orchids are growing in tropical environments. There are even some orchids flowers, which do not engage in the normal process of photosynthesis as most plants do, but actually live from a fungus in the darkness of a cave.

 

Types are plenty,

people who do some cooking from time to time had already a close encounter with it, in particular when it comes to sweets and desserts, its vanilla. Vanilla is used in food; others are used in perfumes. However, the wide spectrum of colors even within a single plant family is one of the main reason why people like different types.
