I've always been intrigued with orchid plants. I had a collection when we lived outside Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. When we decided to move to Costa Rica, I gave them all away.
Orchids in Costa Rica are very inexpensive to buy, compared to Canada. Plus, they are so easy to look after. They can stay outside all year around, they don't need greenhouses or special treatment.
I do have to watch out for fungus problems, but I have a spray for that.
Here are photos of one of my favorite orchid plants.

This isn't my entire collection. I have others on windowsills and hanging in other places.
