Lovely plant and terriffically told legend. I can imagine coming into contact with ome of these beauties om a mountain near a waterfall. I think we get to see more of the central and south american orchids here, even in the conservatories.

The closest thing I have seen here in the Appalacian mountains is Jack-in-the-Pulpit.


Thanks for sharing this.

Hello Peanut and Elektra, thank you very much for your comments! Thanks for the Jack-in-the-Pulpit article also Elektra. Fascinating how the plant decides whether to be male or female! I am intending to feature a South African relative of it in an upcoming installment.

Because I too no botany classes, I never realized how diverse plant sex was. I read that the global almond harvest in California is threatened by not having enough pollinating honey bees ---there are bee brokers and lots of bee keepers come in from outside the state to do the job.
