A common misconception is that orchids are poisonous to cats and dogs, however this is not true.
Throughout the ages, the orchid has represented love, luxury and strength.
More recently, this has shifted to represent rarity and delicate beauty.
But, did you know, the word ‘orchid’ comes from the Greek word for testicles?
In Ancient Greece, people believed that, should a father eat large tubers of the plant, the child would be a boy. If the mother ate small tubers, she would most likely give birth to a girl.
The next time you are placing a bet on whether your loved one is having a boy or a girl, do your research and enquire as to the size of the orchid tubers the parents-to-be have been eating.
What? It’s a perfectly normal question.
And now you know the secret of the gender-influencing orchid, there’ll be no more surprises.
Sorry for ruining every gender reveal party you’re going to attend from now on.
