Madagascar numbers more that 1000 species of charming orchids, whereas new species are being discovered continuously. These flowers are well-adapted to different weather conditions and thus flourish in humid rainforests as well as in dry forests. Orchids sprout even on rocky surfaces. However, their greatest density is spotted in the wet forests on the east, where they often grow on the branches of trees. Among the most memorable species are Angraecum, Cumbidiella and Eulophiella orchids, noted for their large size. The flowers bloom throughout the whole year, still naturalists say that rainy season between January and March is the most favorable time.
