Ophrys Apifera laughing bee orchid

The Laughing Bee Orchid is a unique plant that looks like a solitary female bee to attract a male solitary bee to its flowers. The plant takes it a step further by emitting the scent of a female bee as well. Once the male bee lands on the flower hoping to mate realizes it's no female then flies away full of pollen - nature works in mysterious ways.

To sow laughing bee orchid seeds, use well drained calcareous (alkaline) soil. Can be grown in a greenhouse year round or planted in the fall. Each package comes with 50 seeds.
