Orchid Curiosities

My Favorite Curiosities

Ever wonder why the outside of the flowers of Bulbophyllum phalaenopsis are covered with those odd rubbery little spines, the pseudobulbs of your myremecophilas are hollow or why some of your orchids grow fine spiky roots that stick straight up and defy getting them in a pot? Each of these has a definite evolutionary purpose. Join Ron McHatton as he discusses a selection of his favorite curiosities out of a family replete with curiosities.
