Orchids bloom from April to August. Species living in warm regions, in the hottest time of summer, fall into a state of rest, then begin to bloom again.
Some species orhisov demanding composition of the soil and give preference to particular kinds of soils, others are so undemanding that they feel comfortable even on railway embankments and non-toxic dumps rocks. Most orchids prefer well-lit places or polupritenonnye - edge of the forest, woodlands, meadows. Being patient's samples, they avoid the proximity of the dominant plant species. In the event that the competition can not be avoided, orchids make room for the dominant, leaving himself more comfortable areas.

Most species of orchids prefer well-lit areas or partial shade, but there are, however, and its shade-loving species (Orchis militaris). Orchids that grow in temperate climates, not demanding temperature conditions, winter-hardy. Species living in the Caucasus and Crimean (orchis magenta, orchis simian) thermophilic.
Many species of orchids choose good, but not excessively, moist areas with loose soil, others (marsh orchids) grow on the viscous, water-soaked soil. Requirements orchids to the composition of the soil depends on the type of plants, most of them prefer calcareous soil, like other types of alkaline soils, others are more willing to grow on land rich in minerals. Some species of orchids thrive on poor soils.
Orchids - the perfect plant for the processing of semi-wild garden plots. Forms, undemanding to the composition of the soil, could become a spectacular rock garden decoration. The orchis mixed beds are used rarely - a plant is generally inferior to easily place the dominant type of vegetation, with the exception of mono-beds.
Tubers orchids used in folk medicine for the treatment of diseases of the airways and digestive tract.
In the care of orchids almost does not need, only plants that were planted in open areas, you may need moderate but regular watering. Error care becomes compost fertilizer orchids - change soil acidity can lead to death of plants.
Orchis can reproduce by seeds, including self-seeding. This method of complexity; the fact that the plant seeds only germinate in symbiosis with a fungus of a certain type, so a huge number of units only sprout seeds.
Another way, vegetative, assumes office and otsazhivanie one tuber. Separating the first klubnekoren recommended during budding, then 2-3 week intervals otsazhivayut substituent tubers.
Orchids are extremely resistant to diseases and pests.
