Orchids are fascinating plants.  There are over 30000 different species of orchids in the world, and tens of thousands of artificial hybrids have been made.

Most orchids grow on trees (epiphytes), although many also grow in the ground (terrestrial). Orchids can be found growing all over the world except in the very cold Polar Regions, so it is possible to find orchids that will grow in most areas of South Africa. In particular, the sub-tropical climate in our region is very favourable for the growing of orchids.

Orchids are not difficult to grow, but do have slightly different growing requirements to normal house plants. It is often helpful to join an orchid society to learn more about growing orchids.

Here is a gallery of plants grown by our members.
