FUN FACTS about Orchids:
Orchids are Exotic and a dramatic flower, Orchids add glamour and style anywhere.
Orchids are one of the most beautiful and fragrant flowers in the world. The orchid has always been a prized flower.

It has been believed that the tubers (bulbs) of an orchid would help the conception of a child once ingested. Even the sex of the child was determined by who ate them; if the father ate the tubers then a boy would be born, and likewise if the mother ate them then the child would be a girl.

The orchid flower itself was thought to hold many medicinal purposes – ‘cymbidium’ was used for rheumatism, neuralgia and venereal diseases, while ‘gomesa crispa’ was used for stomach upsets, diarrhoea, fevers, boils, abscesses and even sick elephants! Over time, physicians began to use orchid extracts in many medicines to help the sick.
As well as medicine, orchids have also been widely used for pigmenting and perfumery. The most common use which has withstood the test of time is flavouring – the ‘planifolia’ is used to create a vanilla flavor in foods and perfumes.

Orchids were first recorded by the Chinese in 600BC as ‘Lan’, meaning ’superior man’, ‘elegant woman’ and also strength, virility and beauty. The flower was often referred to in love poems, songs and names. Orchids were also used in ceremonial traditions to ward off evil and to tune the emotion of the animal spirit.

The beauty of these flowers has meant they have remained popular all the way from the early Greek ages to the 21st century.
