The Orchidaceae family is made up of over 28,000 species and 100,000 varieties of orchids, some of which are native to regions of Asia and Australia but can be found everywhere in the world. Ancient Greeks thought of orchids as symbols of fertility, believing that orchids with large roots symbolized a male child and those with short roots a female child. Other civilizations, like the Aztecs, were known to mix vanilla orchids with chocolate, creating an elixir to stimulate strength and power.

 

 

During the Victorian Era, it was custom to give an exotic and rare flower to show your love and affection. The more exotic the flower, the deeper, the more passionate love you had for the person.
