“Orchid flowers are seductive, luring pollinators to do their bidding. Their markings and intricate designs often accomplish the act of pollination
through deception and mimicry. The more I research the complex relationships and survival strategies of the orchid, the more I am intrigued by
this amazing flowering plant family.”
About the Orchid:
Pansy-Orchids, as Miltoniopsis are commonly called in the horticultural world, are hybrids developed from a genus of 5 or 6 species of cool-
growing orchids distributed from Costa Rica to Peru. The parent species are epiphytes from extremely wet cloud forests at elevations from
1500 to 7000 feet. The requirement for cool, moist conditions makes these plants especially vulnerable to habitat loss as the world’s rain
forests are cut down and global climate change leads to the drying out of areas historically moist.
