The tropical greenhouse is a 400 m² lush environment of tropical crop plants, aquatic plants, montane rainforest plants, and epiphytes. There is also a waterfall, a special section of carnivorous plants, and a variety of bromeliad species. The climate in this greenhouse is regulated to remain at 25–30 °C (74–86 °F) with a relative humidity of over 80%. Natural fluctutions in temperature are imitated, since some species (many orchids, for example) require special climatic triggers for natural growing and flowering processes.
