The Dark Orchid Study Group, or commonly called Dark Orchid, is one of the communities in the Department of Biology, State University of Surabaya, which is involved in the field of plant tissue culture, specifically orchid plants. Dark Orchid was established precisely on June 21, 2006, which was pioneered by a 2005 Biology student who, along with his mentor and initiator, Mr. Lukas S. Budipramana, agreed to form the Anggrek plant lovers community which was originally named the Dark Orchid Community. The name Dark Orchid Community is used because most of its members are fans of orchids that have dark flowers, as one example is the Black Orchid. “Dark Orchid” was formed with the aim to bring
back the popularization of the orchid-loving community of lovers who a few years ago had been glorious and famous to other universities.
