Took my daughter & granddaughter yesterday who are both avid indoor plant collectors and they really enjoyed it. The conservatory was built in 1879. I didn't get an outside shot so copied this from their Instagram page.

I was able to photograph some ID tags but not all so I'll number the photos where I need them in the next few posts and would appreciate any help in IDs so I can add them to the database. Thumbs up
Here are some highlights.

Hmmm....7 is either Costus amazonicus or specious variegated
8 is Geogenanthus undated
9 looks like Cortytoplectus...possibly cutucuensus
10 is a Nautilocalxy but I am not sure of the species
11 looks like a large Calathea picturata
14 looks like Philodendron soderoi large form
25 looks like Anthurium nervatum of a closely related species

The Anthurium in 13 is puzzling. I am not certain if it is a species, or a dark leaved Andreanum with a red flower. I actually don't know of a species that looks like that which has a bloom like that (but then I do not know every species LOL). Since it only has one leaf (seemingly) its hard to judge

Happy to suggest. ; ) Came back to scroll through again. The 1st set of pics (especially the super cool lilypads) is my dream garden - where all of the windows have a push-button to open/close as much or as little as I need.

Gina, I'm not certain the red blooms belong to leaf #13

I thought the bottom bloom in that pic looks connected to the big leaf in the center of the pic.

Thanks for taking us on your tropical plant tour. So many beautiful and interesting shapes, colors and textures.
Made my day. I tip my hat to you.
Iโ€™m so busy... โ€œI donโ€™t know if I found a rope or lost a horse.โ€
