The Darker Side of Orchids: The Heist

My wife has an obsession with Orchids and they seem to be slowly invading our house. As beautiful as Orchids are, on closer inspection I think you’ll find they have a darker side. Take their flowers for instance: their petals could be mistaken for the head of a cobra and if the resemblance to snakes was not enough, they have fangs (I kid you not!).  Their aerial roots are spidery and reach out at you like tentacles. They might grab you at any moment. Look closely and you will see that they are seducing your loved one, and stealing your home.
