Orchid

The Orchid family (Orchidaceae Juss., 1789) is a family of monocotyledonous plants belonging to the order Orchidales. Their flowers are commonly known as orchids. This family is made up of herbaceous perennials, some of which are able to absorb the substances they need to survive from the water present in the environment by means of aerial roots (autotrophs) and are also able to derive their nourishment by absorbing substances from decomposing organisms (saprophytes).
