New orchid found in Costa RicaA plant appreciated by Ticos went without a name until the fact that it didn’t match any known species came to light.
The botanist Marco Acuña saw it in a garden of a house in Turrialba. It caught his attention because he was intrigued that it didn’t resemble any other orchid in the Sobralia genus.
