Orchid cultivation started in England somewhere around the 19th century. Wealthy Companies
and individuals would finance expeditions to collect orchids and bring them back to England.
Collectors would travel all over the world for months in search of rare species. These rare exotic
species were mostly sold at auctions in London, for very high prices.

During this time period there wasn't a lot of orchid information on their cultivation, so the
survival rate was very low. Today the gathering of wild orchids has been banned. This ban was
adopted in 1973 by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna
and Flora. The gathering and smuggling of some species are considered to be the reason a lot
of these orchids do not exist in the wild anymore.

The orchid family is believed to be the second largest family of flowering plants with somewhere
around 25,000 acknowledged species. Since the introduction of tropical species in the 19th
century horticulturists have created over 100,000 hybrids.

The name Orchid comes from the Greek word "orkhis" meaning "testicle", because there roots
have a similar shape.

Orchids have become a very huge market throughout the world. Buyers sometimes will bid hundreds of
dollars for new hybrids. With their ease in hybridization, orchids are becoming one of the most popular
cut-flowers on the market today.

Weather you grow one or several orchids, do your research and get accurate orchid information for the
types of orchids you have and you will be able to grow beautiful, amazing orchids that your friends will
envoy and admire.
