Amazing flower monkey head orchid (Dracula simia) That Looks Like a Monkey’s Face

The Amazing flower That Looks Like a Monkey’s Face

It’s not a wonder how the Monkey Orchid got its name, but ever since photos of the monkey head orchid started circulating on the internet, people got to know that such a flower actually exists.



The Monkey Orchid actually exists, and yes, it really looks like very small monkey.  In the scientific name, “simia” refers to the monkey face and “Dracula”
refers to the two long spurs that hang down, almost like fangs.

These rare monkey orchids only grow in the cloud forests of southeastern Ecuador and Peru, at an elevation of between 1,000 and 2,000 meters above sea level, but there are a few lucky collectors who have managed to grow it in “captivity”. The Monkey orchid is not season specific, and in its natural habitat it can flower at any time. The flower smells just like a ripe orange when fully blossomed. Incredible isn’t it !
