Talk: Tropical Orchids

David Lim talk

Orchids comprise one of the most abundant and varied of flowering plant families. There are over 20,000 known species and over 100,000
hybrids. Orchids are especially common in moist tropical regions. They are extremely adaptable, and are able to grow in almost all
climates except for frigid and arid extremes. Tropical orchids are more often epiphytes which grow non-parasitically on trees, some 20%
are terrestrials and lithophytes living on rocks crevices and cliffs. This talk will feature some of the tropical orchid genus that can grow and flower well in Singapore.
