The particular geological, topographical and botanical setting of Taiwan with its steep mountains make it an ideal place for many species of orchid. As an introduction to the beauty of orchids, Chunghwa Post is issuing a series of Wild Orchids of Taiwan in response to the company’s current adjustment of postage with an NT$35-denominated stamp as forerunner.
Cheirostylis octodactyla: This orchid grows on the ground in the mid to high-altitude cloud forests of Taiwan. The white flower is 0.8-1 cm long with many feather-like appendages in front. Its foot turns back like a little octopus.
