Species are naturally occurring varieties of orchids.  The Orchidaceae family contains in excess of 27,000 species attributed to over 700 genera.

Orchid species are found in virtually every habitat in our world.  Though most orchid species are found in the tropics, some are found above the Arctic Circle and thousands between these extremes.

The name Orchid comes from the type genus from which the Orchidaceae family was named.  The genus Orchis name comes from the ancient Greek word orkhis meaning testicle (after the twin tuber shape of this terrestrial species).  Taxonomist John Lindley introduced the shortened term “Orchid” in 1845.

All species plants offered by Aranbeem Orchids have been produced by artificial propagation.
