Good orchid news from Dutch desert island


This Dutch video is about Hompelvoet desert island in Grevelingen lake in the Netherlands. Autumn lady’s-tresses orchids grow there.

This is a rare species in the Netherlands, living at only a few sites.

However, in 2004 the orchids on Hompelvoet were discovered first: 300 flowering plants then.

In 2015, autumn lady’s-tresses orchid numbers had risen to 45,000 flowering plants.
