The orchids are the largest family of flowering plants. Most of the temperate ones live as terrestrial plants but the vast majority of them live on other plants, not as parasites but as epiphytes. Most of mine are in my conservatory, I have been growing many of them mounted to get near the conditions they have in the wild.
