Two of Cups/Ghost Orchid and Pond Apple

by Kevin Jay Stanton

These two plants in conjunction provide a symbiotic environment for a special pollinator. The Ghost Orchid is an elusive epiphyte that co-evolved with a single pollinator – the giant sphinx moth, Cocytius antaeus, whose larvae feed on the pond apple. In this way, they form a small harmonious ecosystem on their own. The cups are pottery made by the Calusta & Tequesta people who lived in the Everglades where these plants are still found.

DIVINATORY – A relationship existing in perfect harmony. Symbiosis, reciprocity.
REVERSE – A conflict causes discord. Focusing on one thing at the expense of all others.
