      The Incredible Monkey Orchid Is a Unique Flower... These beautiful orchids are not man made, although they may seem like it to us. They come from the south-eastern Ecuadorian and Peruvian cloud forests. They only grow at heights of 1-2 km above sea level, and so are quite hard to come by. We owe these photos to insistent collectors who have made the ardous journey.

      Monkey Orchid (Dracula simia) It is not difficult to fathom why these rare orchids from the south-eastern Ecuadorian and Peruvian cloud forests with elevations reaching to 1000 to 2000 meters are named such. The flowers are fragrant with the scent of a ripe orange.

      Vampire Monkey The naming may not be very imaginative, but it fit's these Monkey Orchids or Dracula Simia to a T, with the former being named due to their remarkable resemblance to a monkey's face and the latter alluding to the interesting characteristic of the two long spurs that hang down from the flower like the fangs of a vampire. They can be found in the south-eastern Ecuadorian and Peruvian cloud forests at elevations of 1000-2000 meters, but they're worth the hike to behold. Joseph Lee

      exotic garden- The Amazing Monkey Orchid

    • Janie

      The Monkey Orchid Dracula Simia. It's quite strange when I hear there is interest in the form of a monkey's face, but this is the reality. Imagine, orchid flower is shaped like the original monkey face. Even in a variety of colors of orchids, everything looks like a monkey's face. Monkey orchid is usually hidden in the altitude of nearly 2,000 meters in the woods southeast Peru and Ecuador. Scientific name of this flower is Simia Dracula, Dracula means little dragon as it looks, there are two long spurs on the flowers that resemble a dragon. While Simia is a term that describes when this flower resembles a monkey. Monkey orchid can only be grown in the shade and the weather cold areas. That's why not many people who can take care of him and we are definitely quite foreign to hear monkey orchid. The people who first saw memikirnya sure that this has to do with the mystical, but it is unclear whether the face resembles a monkey just coincidence or mystical. The area is quite difficult temukannya, about 1000-2000 meters altitude on the mountain, but thanks to an intrepid collector curious, he can get the monkey orchid photographs this clearly.
