  • What makes an orchid an orchid?

    Have you ever wondered what makes an orchid an orchid? Well, it is all about flower parts. In fact, most plants are categorized in the Plant Kingdom by their flowers.
    For orchids, it is the fact that they have three sepals and three petals. Many flowers have green sepals that protect the flower inside and then cradles it as it opens.
    For orchids, these sepals don’t stay green in color, rather they take on pastel shades of pink, yellow lavender or white, blending in perfectly and masquerading as petals.
