Our relationship with orchids is a story of obsession, money, deceit, beauty, and sex.
The story of our relationship with Orchids is a story of obsession, money, deceit, beauty, femme fatales, ghosts, deception and let's be honest, sex. Orchid flowers come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes - but they all have one thing in common - they have evolved to maximise their chances of luring a pollinator and be fertilised - and they do so with such style! It's easy to see why have they captivated and lured us too! Producer Sarah Blunt.
