Where do orchids come from?
Seeds of course! As silly as it seems, that wasn’t known until around 1800. As they are very dust-like, it was speculated that they came from birds, goats, and even cadavers somehow in a magical way. Even after they were able to conclude that seeds were produced, it was well into the 1800s that it was known that orchids could be grown from seeds as they couldn’t understand that the dust from orchid seed pods were the seeds.
