Yes, in the northern Hemisphere the orchids are coming.
If you are south of the equator or in the tropics we'd love to see your work too.

Information about Wild Orchids WorldWide!

Hello members and visitors, and welcome to Wild Orchids WorldWide!

We are a group striving to encoure the interest in wild orchids, and to highlight the attention they and their environments need.

Because of that, we only display wild orchids and won't accept pictures of cultivated ones.

Our folders are ordered by distribution over the continents, to try to show as best as we can each zone's and continent's variety in orchids, both in genera and in features/adaptations directly linked to its habitat.

If you have other wildflower pictures, be sure to check out our sister group, Flora Terra - floraterra.deviantart.com/ . We'll help with identification as much as we can!
____________________________

To help you identify the genera and species you find (and to just learn more about this most fascinating plant family with as much as 25 000 species), we're going to link some websites where you can find pictures and/or information about orchids:

Don't be too afraid of using Wikipedia, it has some great basic information on the Orchid Family! :)

Orchid Wiki is a data base where one can search for information about different orchid genera and species.

On OrchidPhotos one can find pictures of cultivated and sought Orchid genera. This can help greatly in your quest to identify an orchid!

Wildflowers of the United States is a website with a "search by state" system, where you can get a brief list of species present in each state, and also find links to locally active groups and websites. A great start for identification in the US!

This Western Australian Flora Base enables you to find good information about all the vascular plant families of Western Australia, including wild orchids.

This site has a narrow selection of Southern Europes orchid species, but it might help to do a rough identification, and to know type feautures of present genera.
EuropeanOrchids is another website for identifying and finding information on Europe's wild orchids.

oh well, I'll maybe put up more links later on.

Best regards, Pontus.
