In order to get more accurate results, our search has the following Google-Type search functionality:
If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry NOT Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.
ex: "Harry Potter" will return any results with 'Harry Potter' in them, but not 'Potter Harry'.
Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
Create beautiful paper models of 20 orchid species!
Display native orchids with these realistic paper replicas that you simply pop-out and glue together--no scissors required! These paper sculptures were produced under the direction of scientists at the North American Orchid Conservation Center, which is located at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center's United States Botanic Garden.
This kit features:
A full-colour book presenting fascinating information about the orchid species.
Precut pieces for 20 beautiful 3D paper orchids
Detailed assembly instructions for each model, which are ranked by difficulty
A display base for each model
The accompanying book explains the efforts that are underway to conserve threatened and endangered native North American species. The project introductions show photos of the finished models as well as stunning photos of each model's living counterpart.
The amazing collection of orchids in this kit includes:
The Showy Lady's Slipper Orchid: the tallest US-native orchid, which is threatened in part due to its 15-year maturation period
The Water Spider Orchid: North America's only aquatic orchid, which exudes a chemical deterrent to protect its tender roots from predation
The Dragon's Mouth Orchid: attracts pollinating bumblebees through strong ultraviolet inflorescence
The Cigar Orchid, also know as 'the Bee Swarm Orchid': has become endangered through over-collecting
The Striped Coralroot Orchid: doesn't manufacture food through photosynthesis, but rather survives through a parasitic relationship with a fungus
The Rattlesnake Plantain Orchid: an evergreen species with patterned leaves that resemble snake skin, and a flower spike that looks like a rattlesnake's rattle
