Orchid Child exists in research papers

I was sent a link that I have to admit I found quite interesting and disturbing at the same time.

With all the times in the past I have written about orchids, who would have thought that someone else would also have written about it? Scientific American in fact, and now I wonder if I came to my own conclusions, or if I read something, and plagiarized the concept without realizing it. Or perhaps I have a 6th sense, and saw it in my crystal ball? I honestly don’t know the truth of how this came about, but it seems there are minds who have actually done the work and come up with concepts regarding the orchid child that takes what I thought and provides data too.

Not only does orchid child exist, and prosper in that ideal environment, orchid child can also wither in that not-so-ideal environment. Plus, rather than alfafa sprouts or weeds they have termed others, the dandelions. I have to admit, dandelions are a pretty good description. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have lots of thoughts rumbling through my head as a result of this article and I have as of yet, been unable to put in writing, much of those thoughts. So, rather than wait until my head clears, I thought I’d simply share the link, and perhaps add my take at a later date. Thanks to jono for the link.
