Orchids, Orchids, everywhere I look I see more Orchids!

I was thrilled to pieces with the amount of orchids I saw blooming in Costa Rica, every where I looked there were more! Sides of the roads were covered with orchid plants, trees were covered, fence posts would have an orchid blooming from the top. Dare I say it, they grow like weeds in Costa Rica!
Check out the varieties::

Orchids really grow every where in Costa Rica, including on fence posts

  1. Heaven. I wish I could get my hand on some of those!
    I just watered my orchid collection tonight, and it looks like a few of them are about to rebloom. I couldn’t grow an orchid plant to save my life in Michigan, but I’m having no trouble in Arizona!

    • Janet, I had a beautiful orchid collection in California but can’t even keep them alive in Colorado. Picky little suckers!
