The First Ground Angrek

The First Ground Angrek

(p.61) Chapter Ten The First Ground Angrek
Rumphius' Orchids

Georgius Everhardus Rumphius

Yale University Press

This chapter describes the various aspects of the first ground Angrek. Angraecum terrestre primum or Daun corra corra sprouts from the ground and attaches itself by means of many thick fibers that mostly creep bare along the ground, like worms, and has countless other, smaller ones. From among them emerges first a tuft of leaves, which embrace one another, and make for a thick, striped stem below, like the leaves of Curcuma Silvestris, but much larger, and not so smooth, a blackish green, deeply striped lengthwise, and full of folds, but in such a way that some ridges commence in the center, sticking out sharply at the bottom, with other lesser ones among them, about four feet long, or more, one and a half to two hands wide.

Keywords:   Ground Angrek, Angreecum terrestre primum, Daun corra corra, Curcuma Silvestris, thick fibers
