How Orchid started?

How did the name orchid get started? I have been an member since
about the first of this year when a friend told me about this
wonderful forum, so I am fairly new to Orchid. What is the
significance of the orchid as the symbol for the jewelry forum? I
would like to know a little more on the history of who started it and
how it came about. Thanks to all. Roxan in Pa.

Roxan Hanuman, Dr. Ed Aspler our wonderful leader is based in
Thailand. The Orchid is a flourishing native plant and a symbol of
Thailand, hence the wonderful name.

** Hanuman’s note **

Thanks Teresa, That’s right, but I prefer to be referred as a
"moderator" or “host” … but for sure not a leader :slight_smile:
