Meaning and History
Orchids are considered symbols of love because of the fact that the plants grow easily, and bloom under most conditions. During the Victorian era, it was a custom to gift exotic and rare flowers to show love and affection. It was even believed that rarer the flower you chose as a gift, deeper was your love. In parts of Europe, orchids were used as a key ingredient in love potions.


Fertility :
Orchids have long been associated with fertility and virility. In ancient Greece, it was believed that consuming the root tubers could determine the sex of the unborn fetus. If the father of the unborn child ate large tubers of the plant, his wife was likely to give birth to a boy. On the other hand, if the expecting mother ate small orchid tubers, she was most likely to give birth to a baby girl. Due to this widespread belief, orchids became popular gifts for expecting couples. In ancient China, orchids were said to represent many children.
