Orchids (Orchidaceae) is the largest family in the plant kingdom. It currently comprises some 25,000 species distributed throughout the world. In Europe 850, and in Catalonia 89.

The flowers of the orchids are very showy and in the tropical regions is where the great majority is concentrated.

In our latitudes the orchids are terrestrial and geófitos, they spend the winter under the ground in the form of rhizome or tuber (underground reserve organs).

Most are hermaphrodites, and no other plant family has so many different strategies, including deception and seduction, to attract insects to their flowers.
