One of the most common flowers in the rain forest, orchids come in more than 20,000 varieties. They grow not only from the jungle floor but on tree branches in the top of the canopy. They begin their life as seeds dropped by birds and other animals in the rain forest. Orchids grow with three petals and three sepals. Pink orchids range in shades from light pink to magenta.
