Marsh Dremlik is a species of orchid that grows in the wild. It is listed in the Red Book of Mordovia, as this flower will soon disappear from the face of the Earth. In the Republic of Mordovia, such an orchid is rarely found in the wild. However, amateur gardeners learned to cultivate it in their gardens and use it for decorative purposes. In addition to Mordovia, the flower is listed in the Red Book of Ukraine and is protected in several European countries.
The plant has the appearance of herbaceous bushes measuring 30-65 cm. The plant has a long rhizome with small processes of the main root. From above, the stem is a little down, as if from the heaviness of blossoming flowers. The leaves are arranged alternately, have an oblong oval shape with a pointed end.
For a flower to bloom on the stem of a plant, the Swamp Dreel requires eleven years of life. The flowers have the classic form of an orchid, as well as six different brightnesses of the color of the petals. On the brush of one plant is placed from 10 to 25 flowers. Flowers bloom from bottom to top and bloom throughout the summer. In the wild, napkin sprouts in the swampy forests and clearings. Dremlik is able to withstand excessive soil moisture and loves high light. Orchid can often be found in America, Africa, Scandinavia, the Himalayas and Eastern Siberia.
Dremlnik propagates not only by seeds, but also vegetatively. Most often, gardeners use vegetative propagation, since it is very difficult to use seeds for decorative orchid cultivation, because the seed will germinate when a certain type of mushroom falls on it. The virgin period of Dremlika lasts about 5-6 years.
In the pollination of flowers, insects play a major role. The structure of Dremlic flowers is so specific that wasp from the genus Eumenes are best suited for their pollination. The sweet taste of nectar, which also has a stupefying property, affects the insect so much that it has to move from flower to flower, as it is not able to fly away immediately.
Most often, napkins are planted by dividing the root. The plant is whimsical, as the gardener will need to constantly monitor its regular watering, cleaning from weeds and pests . When planting a plant, flower growers often use special water with a high content of vitamin. In winter, the plant is covered with soil and covered with leaves so that the root of the napkin does not freeze. Even scrupulous care does not repel a person from the desire to plant this fragile and delicate flower in its area.
In addition to decorative purposes, the plant is also used for medicinal purposes. It has long been used to enhance the sexual function of men. A decoction of orchids eliminates toothache and female pain, tones and strengthens the body. Independent use of the plant for medical purposes is prohibited. Marsh Dremlik is a plant for true connoisseurs of orchids. It is suitable for a rocky garden, for planting on the river bank or a small personal reservoir.
