Hi all, My wife and I visited Costa Rica for a week for some ecotourism and to get away from cold and dreary Maryland. A private orchid garden had these for sale as souvenirs: And there were even some for sale at the airport: I was surprised to see flasks being put into the hands of mere mortals, but I hope purchasers have good luck with them. They seemed (from what little I could tell) to be easy-to-grow kinds. I have no idea if they'd make it across the US border, despite the claims on the packaging. --Stephen P.S. Costa Rica was gorgeous. Everyone should visit.
