Following his father's death, he took over the management of the Botanic Gardens. This was an opportunity for him to explore his horticultural and botanical interests. David Moore had studied orchids and had succeeded in cultivating orchids from seed. But, it was Frederick Moore with his special interest in tropical orchids, who focused on developing the orchid collection. One of the ways he acquired new species was at plant auctions in London. Although there are records relating to the collection, it is difficult to estimate its exact size. (8) Quick Botany Lesson: Orchid Flowers. World's smallest orchid flower discovered in Brazil. A number of plants had been delivered for analysis to the Environmental Conservation Unit (UCAD) on the tiny island, Ilha de Santa Catarina, where Mr Siqueira was researching a subtype of orchids, which grow on other plants.
"In the whole group, all the plants are small in general, but this overdid the dose and became tiny," he joked. "I found the little flower and researched orchids. There isn't one as small as this. "They are generally endemic in certain areas of the forest, like the Atlantic forest, with restricted range but relatively abundant in population when found. "They are morphologically similar; without the flower, it is almost impossible to distinguish one species from another. " According to Mr Siqueira, 10 per cent of flowering plants are orchids. A rare orchid might not need a rare fungus to germinate. All orchids are at least partially mixtrophic.
It’s being able to parasitise fungi that allows them to germinate. In the longer-term, they can build specialised relationships that might still be parasitic and remain heterotrophic, getting their food from elsewhere. Or they might same some of their own food through photosynthesis and have a mix of nutrients from the air and their fungal partners, a mixotrophic lifeway. Not all fungi are the same, and orchids might require their own partners. Could this place a limit on orchid distribution, leaving them unable to germinate where their fungal partners don’t live?
The Orchidaceous Plants of Franz Bauer and John Lindley. Two of the most important early contributors to our understanding of orchids were the artist Franz Bauer (1758-1840) and the English botanist and gardener John Lindley (1799-1865), who was to become known as the “father of modern orchidology”.
The publication of the Illustrations of Orchidaceous Plants [from sketches prepared between 1792 and 1832] between 1830 and 1838 combined Bauer’s great skill and Lindley’s knowledge and industriousness to produce an invaluable artistic and scientific work.

That “basic order” means two large pots, with four phalaenopsis orchid plants apiece, two facing forward and two doubles—each with a pair of flower-bearing, stem-like spikes—turned towards the side. When they’re in bloom, phalaenopsis spikes (or inflorescences, as they’re also known) curve gently under the weight of an elegant row of flowers.
