Tropical Plants in Panama


Panama is a narrow isthmus which connects North and South America and is considered a paradise for a wide variety of plants and animals.  It has one of the richest collections of birds in the world.

Panama is blessed to have a tropical climate, which means it enjoys a permanent Spring all year round.  There are no problems of tropical storms, blizzards, deep droughts or other meteorological phenomenon found in other parts of the world.

Panama has a lush tropical vegetation, and in some places, there are plant species that have not been even discovered deep in the tropical jungles of Darien or Bocas del Toro.

My wife love plants, but because she has to go out to work every day, her plant collection is not that big.  However, she manages to keep some plants around the house.  Yesterday I decided to take a few shots of three plants that my wife keeps at our front porch where they receive direct sunlight.

Below is an example of some of the tropical plants you will find in this neck of the woods.  Here we go.

And now you know what types of plants we keep around our houses in Panama, a land that is well known for its rich lush vegetation.  Good Day.
