I'm pretty sure it was placed in the high tree where I saw it but that doesn't diminish it in any way. There are plenty of orchids around that have been placed where everyone can enjoy them as they grow just fine without any care at all.
Florida is home to about half of the orchid species found in the United States including four known species of orchids are found nowhere else in the world. Until I read some of the information on Florida Native Orchids.com I didn't realize that Florido, translated from Spanish, means "Land of Flowers" which is appropriate due to the varieties that thrive in this climate. The first orchid I saw growing naturally is pictured below.
