Its two dark eyes, fuzzy dotted eyebrows, and furry nose and beard area bear striking simian resemblances that become even more obvious when viewed from a distance. It might as well be called the baboon faced orchid, but who's keeping track? The Monkey Face Orchid is incredibly rare so don't get upset if you've never seen one before. It is only found in the cloud forests of Peru and southeastern Ecuador at altitudes of more than 3, feet. It can bloom all year round, thrives in intermediate-to-warm weather, and its flowers smell like ripe oranges, making it a prized addition to any orchid connoisseurs garden. To create an especially striking bouquet or floral arrangement starring Dracula Simia, consider pairing the pointy orchid with bushy, fluffy plants and flowers like the wild pussy. A small detail to keep in mind: some Monkey Face Orchids grow large, with down-turned pointy petals while others produce a smaller, fuzzier bloom that look more like monkey faced-cotton balls. If you're more into morbid floristry, try making an arrangement out of the Monkey Face Orchid and a bunch of Dragon's Skulls dead and dried snapdragons. Is it an alien? Is it a sea anemone?
