The orchid house was quite small with about 10 plants in flower (4 different species), the other 50-60 orchids being dormant. The bonsai section had 4 nice specimens. The cactus section was pathetic. There was one... More

This place has virtually nothing there that they have on their map, but conversely many things you wouldn't think they would, they do have, including many animals in cages. They don't have hardly any orchids in the Orchid House the largest orchid in the world that supposed to be there is not, I did not see any of the medicinal... More
