3 new awesome greenhouse additions

First- our amazing VISTA volunteer Briahn visited the NW chapter of the Cactus and Succulent Society and was able to secure a donation of an amazing array of cactus plants. This huge assortment was will be a great addition to the diverse plant life of our garden.

Secondly- Anthony trotted over to the Indoor Sunshoppe in Fremont and filled a donated empty aquarium tank with an array of CARNIVEROUS PLANTS!!!! The students immediatly wanted to stick their finger in every Venus Fly Trap but NO! They don’t appreciate that, they want to eat insects! Along with the fly traps, there are some pitcher plants, sundews, and other funky carniverous plants. They are thriving in the heated greenhouse.

Thirdly- the Indoor Sun Shoppe was the place to get Bromeliads aka air plants. these amazing plants live on sun, water, and air- no soil! They will be hanging in the greenhouse windows for all to enjoy.

It's flowering!
