|Orchidaceae, Carl Linnaeus|
|There are close to 1000 genra of orchids, |
of which 80% are found in tropical countries.
|Orchids have evolved to achieve |
cross-polynization. This accounts
for the infininate repertoir of variaties.
|The Singapore Botanical Gardens, |
that I visited a few years ago,
displayes the products of its orchids breeding
progran in their gratest splendor.
