Do You Know Ghost Orchids? - Part 1 – Nature 14

One of ghost orchids (credit to The news-Press)

I just read from medias and make me curious about “ghost orchid” (Dendrophylax lindenii).

It is because:

1. Ghost orchid is a rare species, found only in Cuba and Florida
2. Two thousand orchids only live in the Florida
3. Several percentages, about two hundred orchids blooming in summer.
4. Orchids have no leaves
5. Roots cling to the bark of trees.

Uniquely, ghost orchid blooming once a year only from June to August in nature. The blooming could last for several weeks.

As suggested by Russell McLendon (2019: 12 Enchanting Quirks of the Rare Ghost Orchid) that other specific characters of ghost orchid:

- orchid may germinate after infection by certain fungus
- smell likes apples

What species of trees which ghost orchids to attach to?

Four important tree species are:

- maple
- cypress
- pond apple
- palm tree

How about with ghost orchid population in nature?

Are they decreasing in number?

  3. I had never thought about the fact that symbiosis orchids do not have leaves!...
    I was amazed by the ghost orchids enjoying the cypress...
    Thank you for the information, Rainbow.
    Have a nice time.

  4. That's cool, that's why we see orchids only with flowers, I've never received an orchid with leaves, they only have flowers. I don't know what the real name is. Have a happy week.
    I send you a kiss.

  9. A natureza consegue sempre surpreender-nos e, estas orquídeas estão nesse caso.
    Para além da sua originalidade são também muito raras, o que as torna mais apreciáveis.
    Não conhecia e agradeço a partilha.
    Abraço amigo.
