12 types of Peruvian orchids you will love

There are around 30,000 species of orchids in the world. That is a lot! I do not know the names of the types that exist, I only know that I love them ♥ I think you can tell if you look at my Instagram account. Its colors, its delicate shape, is a beautiful flower without a doubt.

In Peru more than 3,000 types of orchids grow, since we have regions with the cloudy forest ecosystem, ideal for its growth. Here I show you only 12 of them that I like very much. I would need a whole blog to show the beauty of each of them.
