Costa Rica has the greatest diversity of plants in the world. With close to one quarter of its landmass being dedicated to protected areas, there is absolutely no shortfall of incredible aquatic or terrestrial plants, flowers, and other epidemic species of plant life that even expert biologists will enjoy and be amazed.
The Poor-Man’s Umbrella (bottom left) is an herbaceous plant that has a stem that can be up to twelve inches in length, and leaves that can be three to six feet in diameter. The leaves have five main veins that allow them to disperse water to avoid the growth of fungi and mold, and the fruits have one seed each.
