Orchids are delicate flowers, but ours are tended by green-fingered Don Feliciano, who carefully raises them. He attaches the orchids by their roots to tree trunks, and encourages them to attach themselves and grow, using the host tree instead of soil.
These purple flowers are La Guardia Morada and as well as being beautiful, are the national flower of Costa Rica. You can see why!
