Naked Man Orchid | Orchis Italica | Italian Orchid
Pssst, want to see a naked man? How about lots of naked men? Then this article is for you, because it’s all about beautiful naked men – of the plant variety that is. But to see everything that the amazing botanically built male image has to offer, you have to use a little imagination.
Common Human Trait
It’s a common human trait for us to see ourselves in other things and to see things often differently than they really are. Case in point, the beautiful and delicate Orchis Italica, or ‘The Naked Man Orchid’.
These delicate pink, purple, yellowish and white orchids oddly resemble the shape of nude male figures, and seem to have many of the anatomical variations that human men share.
It is the perfect plant for the ladies at the office, who can enjoy a perverse sense of pleasure having a potted Pee Pee plant upon their desk that causes male counterparts to squirm with subconscious discomfort.
Gift For A Bachelorette Party
But, be forewarned, while Naked Man Orchids may be an appropriate gift for a bachelorette party, they are not advisable as part of a corsage for formal gatherings, and most certainly not for proms.
Also known as the Italian orchid, Orchis Italica is a species native to the Mediterranean area. It prefers partial shade, low nutrient soil and flowers in April. The Naked Man Orchid grows up to 50 centimeters (20 inches) in height, and features bright, densely clustered flowers ‘hanging’ from dainty stems.
