Why do the tropics grow so much better?

    It’s the combination of sunlight, rainfall and geography. Many places in the lower latitudes (closer to the equator,) get lots of sun but not enough rain- like The Sahara Desert. Other places get lots of rain but not enough sun to support a large diversity of life, like forests in Washington and Oregon. And sometimes areas can be cut off from rain due to mountain ranges nearby. The combination of sunlight, rain, and geography allows the tropics to support a wide range of plants, which in turn, supports a wide range of animals.
