Herbalism & Medical Astrology
This may sound cliché coming from an herbalist, but I love plants. Even the ones not written / taught/ recognized as having medicinal values for humans. Orchids are really fascinating and quite ancient. There’s speculation their origin goes back 100 millions years (at-least 15 million with evidence.) Many of them have evolved to attract a very specific insect for pollinations, so if that insect goes extinct 😿 They have a pretty cool relationship with fungi I don’t fully understand yet -depending on it for germination since their seed doesn’t have an endosperm which typically provides seeds nutrients for sprouting. Anyways, blahblahimboringblah, the flowers are just insane. Seriously go google an owl orchid. Vanilla is in this family 💗 #favflavor 💗 It wasn’t until moving away from subtropical Florida that I feel in love with this #Orchids. Glad I have, I feel they’re calling me home.
