Cloud Forest Orchid in Monte Verde Cloud Forest
Cloud Forest Orchid. I was on a private tour to Costa Rica and we were in Monte Verde Cloud Forest. When setting up the itinerary I had asked about visiting this small, family owned orchid garden The family has government permission to propagate orchids from the cloud forest. It was dark and raining. The orchids were so tiny I needed a local guide to show me where they were.
