Huh? Monkey Orchid!!

Now, the orchid in the photo is definitely a unique bloom. The photo gives us a look at a "monkey orchid," also known as "monkey-like Dracula." The scientific name for that bloom that looks like the face of a monkey is Dracula simia. The long spurs hanging down from the monkey's face look very similar to the fangs sported by Dracula! Now, one would have to go way up high in the mountains of Ecuador to see a "monkey orchid." If Ecuador was not on the travel agenda, then a traveler would have to see this orchid in the Peruvian or Columbian mountains. Failure would occur, more often than not, if a human tried to grow one of these orchids on their own. A grower would have to provide the perfect conditions and necessary equipment to have any success at growing a "monkey orchid." Seeds for the "monkey orchid" are sold online, but my research has resulted in a warning from the pros regarding those seeds. The seeds sold are often not genuine. If you are lucky enough to be up close and personal with a "monkey orchid," you may enjoy the orchid's ripe-orange fragrance.

How interesting. That is an amazing flower. I would think it would be very difficult to cultivate.

i like it. i think there are some more orchids that resemble different living things as well, or maybe not only orchids but others.

@Corbin5 The video is amazing. Thanks for sharing. Now, I'm not worried about how I look anymore as I don't have a monkey face like that flower does.
