Generally orchids are glabrous (smooth and hairless) plants. However, hairy characteristics in orchids are not uncommon, it can be very minute to a cm long, soft to stiff, silky to shiny etc., on stem, raceme, leaf, flower parts etc. What may be, all types of hairy outgrowths are whitish.
Rarely few orchid species are with brownish hairs. It is a characteristic seen only in a few genera.
