Saw these on a trip to a botanical garden earlier this year. Sorry the camera lens kept steaming up!

Lovely pictures. I think that the lens steaming up adds to the effect.

I agree Aileen.....some wonderful pics there. And those Swiss Cheese plants are in their element!

Thanks Myron & Janey. The humidity was unbelievable but what an adventure, my fav pic is where the sunlight is streaking through the leaves!

I couldn't get close to the Hibiscus and used full 22 x zoom on my camera - it was also quite tall!

I would like to try growing a Brugmansia or the other one similar which at the moment I can't remember the name!

Thanks Gralew. It was lovely in there, so warm. I remember years ago they used to have turtles in the pond but not anymore - I'm sure the chap said they bite, but maybe that was to keep people's hands away from them.

Love that Monstera plant. I'm sure there was a flower bud on one of them :o)

I would love to have a go with Brugmansia & Datura! :))

Brugmansia, and especially Datura are very easy to grow from seed and grow very fast Helenium.
