What Makes an Orchid an Orchid?

The structure of the flower makes Orchids different from all other plants. Each Orchid flower has 3 sepals and 3 petals that alternate around the cmiddle of the flower, while some of these parts are modified and not very easily recognizable. The center lower petal of an Orchid flower is the lipt. In the center of the Orchid flower is a "club-shaped" column, and this is a combination of male and female reproductive organs all in one location.
