 Native Orchid Species of Singapore
 
Situated at 1o north of the equator, right in the middle of South East Asia, Singapore has a typical equatorial climate. It used to be covered in luxuriant rainforest with various habitats such as the low land dipterocarp forest, secondary forests, mangroves, swamp forests, grassland and wasteland. More than 200 orchid species represented by some 60 genera were recorded in Singapore. 
 
It has many interesting species among the native orchids, including, one of the longest orchid plants, the climber, Vanilla griggithii; the largest orchid plant in the world, Grammatophyllum speciosum; one “leafless” genus, Taeniophyllum; and several “Jewels” such as Anoectochilus and Nephelaphyllum, etc
