Rare orchids


The rare species today are protected and therefore it is very difficult for anyone who tries to make them grow in an environment that is not theirs. Besides the fact that cultivating rare species would therefore be a crime, precisely because rare and therefore particular these species are unable to live and adapt simply to a different habitat from that of origin. In fact, there are many precautions that need to be taken in order for the rare orchids they can grow and develop in all their beauty. In particular, different methods are required for each of the species that have been previously created. Every type of action to be taken must tend to recreate the environment from which they are performed rare orchids they come, in which they grow spontaneously and without the need for human intervention.For example, the Angraecum type requires a lot of brightness and a temperature that is not too hot.Ideal orchid soil



The peculiarity of this type of orchids is that they need continuous care with respect to humidity. The soil and the environment must therefore be continuously moistened. It needs to be continuously moistened, because it does not present moments of rest. The genus Miltonia, on the other hand, as well as the Odontoglossum, precisely because they are found in nature in the cool areas of Central America need not too hot temperatures and low humidity. it wants cool temperatures (15 degrees at night), being content with low brightness. The cultivation of the genus Laelia is very difficult, since it requires a continuous variation of temperatures that must be changed several times during the day. This type of treatment, necessary in order to have a good result from the point of view of flower growth, is linked to the fact that this species usually grows in environments where the thermal variation is very high. Those who want to cultivate the orchids of the genus Zygopetalum will instead necessarily have to do it in the greenhouse. If you decide to start cultivating rare orchids then you will need to read up on the type of care they need to prevent them from dying.

Protection of rare orchids


Rare orchids are perhaps, due to sudden environmental changes, the most endangered plants of the plant world. Precisely for this reason rare orchids are protected all over the world. There are many rules and laws that aim to safeguard the rarest species of orchids, although, since the species are very many, these rules are often not applied in a total manner thus causing a lower result in terms of protecting the plants themselves. Despite this there are fixed points of the law that does not allow to collect or possess rare orchid species. The law is even stricter with those who appropriate or try to grow orchids that are endangered. But what still really manages to protect rare orchids is precisely the difficulty in making them grow in environments other than their own. It is, in fact, almost impossible to be able to recreate an environment that can perfectly accommodate a rare orchid at home, in a garden or in a greenhouse. Most of the orchids that are grown in an environment that is not suitable in fact, even if this is recreated with all the possible precautions, does not succeed in growing, indeed, instead of increasing its growth, they tend to block it. This goes against the trend compared to other types of plants that instead increase the pace of their growth at home. A demonstration that rare orchids are very particular and delicate plants.

Enthusiasts and collectors of orchids



For collectors and enthusiasts, however, it is possible to buy rare orchids only if these are artificially grown and only by sellers who are in possession of a regular license to sell them. In fact, the law says that anyone who sells rare species will have to issue a document attesting that the latter do not come from protected environments but have been grown in an artificial environment.
Lovers of these plants and those who deal with this sector have fought in more ways to ensure that these plants were completely restored to their natural environment where they are born, grow and develop. In particular, so that the air and the soil, the main elements of the environment, are protected from pollution which over time risks making this type of plants disappear.
There are many manifestations that are interested in rare orchids. The initiatives, organized by enthusiasts of the sector, are aimed at the protection of individual species that risk disappearing forever if environmental protection measures are not taken.
