Yellow flowers in the home garden

The term "ground orchid" is a general term that refers to a group of orchids that grow at ground level rather than in the air or on trees like many other orchid species. Ground orchids are typically terrestrial, meaning they grow in soil rather than being epiphytic or lithophytic.
There are several different species of orchids that are considered ground orchids. Some popular examples include:

Bletilla: Also known as the Chinese ground orchid, Bletilla is a genus of terrestrial orchids that are native to East Asia. They have pseudobulbs and produce showy flowers in various colors, including pink, purple, and white.
Calanthe: Calanthe orchids are found in many parts of the world, including Asia, Africa, and the Americas. They are terrestrial orchids with broad leaves and tall flower spikes. The flowers are usually colorful and attractively patterned.

Open the bloom of your heart and become a gift of beauty to the world.
Spathoglottis: Spathoglottis is a genus of ground orchids native to Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. They have long, strap-shaped leaves and produce spikes of vibrant flowers in shades of purple, pink, orange, or yellow.
Epipactis: Epipactis orchids are native to Europe, Asia, and North Africa. They are terrestrial orchids that thrive in woodland areas and meadows. Epipactis species typically have small, inconspicuous flowers that are often greenish in color.
Pterostylis: Pterostylis, also known as greenhood orchids, are native to Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. They are ground-dwelling orchids with distinctive hooded flowers that resemble the head of a bird or an insect.
