The Tropical House
A large variety of ferns, both terrestrial and epiphytic, reside in the high humidity and warm temperatures of the Tropical House. An unusual cycad, bromeliad, and begonia collection surround the two naturalistic pools. There is quite a large lizard that may well be an iguana who lives here and he (she?) may come as a surprise but he's harmless.
Several important economic plants are represented: among them, the chocolate tree from the shady tropics, the tall papaya tree, the vanilla vine, and the dwarf banana.
From the Tropical House you can go back to the Lobby.
