Orchids are plants that belong to the family Orchidaceae, a diverse and widespread group of flowering plants with blooms that are often colourful and fragrant. Along with the Asteraceae, the Orchidaceae is one of the two largest families of flowering plants.
Orchids are wonderful and addicting. Once you have one, you will find that you want another, and another, and another…… They are beautiful, and some are ones that only a mother would love. Some orchids smell so sweet and others like rotten meat. Learning how the orchids have evolved to attract their pollinators is one of the most fascinating parts of the study of orchids.
Orchid lovers and growers are from all walks of life, with different occupations, but all share a passion for orchids. Once you get it, you are hooked. Orchids bring peace, love, and happiness to your life; they bring a way to escape from the stresses of everyday living. Whether you grow on your windowsill, or under lights in your basement, or outdoors, or in a greenhouse, you are a part of the wonderful orchid community, and, by being a member of the AOS, you have a home and are part of a close-knit orchid community. The orchids are amazing and so are orchid people. They are always willing to share their knowledge and love of orchids with others.
