Goodyera abbreviated as Gdyra. in horticultural trade, is a genus of orchids (family Orchidaceae) belonging to the subfamily Orchidoideae.

Distribution

Orchids of this genus grow in environments ranging from alpine valleys in Scandinavia to east Asia, the Pacific Islands, New Guinea, Australia to coniferous forests in North America.

Description

Goodyera flowers are characterized by a saccate nectary of the lip with a beak-shaped apex. Sepals and petals are connivant over the column. Pollinia in Goodyera are granular, in contrast to Cranichideae, another member of this tribe.

Creeping rhizomes and rosettes of evergreen leaves characterize the genus. Goodyera is closely related to the genus Spiranthes.

Culture

Plants are usually grown in cool to warm conditions. Keep plants in a shady area. Pot with a well drain medium composed of sand, fir bark, perlite, and soil. Plants should be kept evenly moist

Naming

The genus is named after botanist John Goodyer.
