The Dog Angrek

The Dog Angrek

(p.37) Chapter Seven The Dog Angrek
Rumphius' Orchids

Georgius Everhardus Rumphius

Yale University Press

This chapter elaborates the different aspects of the dog Angrek, which has many long roots that are all tangled up, and which wind around a tree without forming a massive clump. The leaves grow in two rows, alternately over against one another, at a straight angle from the stem, stiff and ribbed, four to five inches long, and one and a half wide. The remainder of the stem is bare, somewhat bellied below, otherwise round, and two or three feet long, bearing few flowers at the tip, two or three together. These are, along with the white ones, the largest among all the Angreks, fashioned from five leaves, all purple, without characters, of which the four outer leaves are spread out.

Keywords:   Dog Angrek, long roots, massive clump, ribbed, stiff
