Orchid by barnsis

Currently unavailable for purchase

This orchid ((a Phalaenopsis hybrid) can be found in the Missouri Botanical Garden inside the Climatron. The Missouri Botanical Garden is acclaimed world wide for their work in botany. The Climatron is a iconic geodesic dome greenhouse, it encloses what might be the most surprising half-acre of land in the Midwestern Unite States.
From the moment that you enter, no matter the season, you are immersed in a thriving tropical rain forest environment. You feel the heat and humidity; you hear the sounds of gurgling water and cascading waterfalls. A lush, green landscape of exotic plants surrounds you. Some plants and flowers perch on inhospitable-looking rocks, while others cling to trees that appear to brush the top of the 70-foot-high dome. There is a river aquarium with strange fish, and a bridge overlooking the unusual vegetation. Everywhere, there are bright flowers.
