There are many flowers which rely on a correlated relationship with fungi, and orchids are one of them. As orchid seeds cannot germinate on their own, they require an invasion of fungi. This is not a parasitic attack to the plant; it is a mutual relationship in which the young orchids are unharmed.


 The young vanilla plant cannot establish itself at all without the aid of its fungal partner.
