Last fall,  I was hiking a few miles from a road in the Fakahatchee
swamp in Florida.  This is known the be the best place in North
Americal for orchids, with many ephphytic species that occur no
where else.  I saw a large vanilla bean orchid twining up a cypress
tree.  Does anyone have an opinion on if this is known to occur in
the wild in Florida?  Another unusual finding on loop road in the
everglades as a Chicle Tree,   or Dilly.
