Orchids (bot. Orchidaceae) have fascinated people for more than 2500 years. For example, they were used as a remedy, decoration and aphrodisiac. The oldest traditions come from the Chinese Empire. Philosophers like Confucius reported on your bewitching scent and gave it the Chinese character “lán”, which means grace, love, purity, elegance and beauty. The oldest European traditions come from the Greek Late Classical period. Even before the Spaniards conquered the country, orchids had been cultivated in America for a long time. The Aztecs worshiped them as sacred flowers and cultivated them in the gardens of their sanctuaries. A beautiful flower with a long tradition.
Due to its ability to adapt to a wide variety of living conditions, botanists also refer to the orchid as a particularly intelligent plant. Orchids can be found both in the hottest tropics and on the border of the polar ice caps. Their manifestations are, however, correspondingly different.
