Great specimen Myriam. It looks like a wonderful place. Those Anchomanes in the back look enormous.

Thanks Evan! Smiling Yes, it is full of aroids in the tropical greenhouses of that botanical garden! It is a wonderful place to be, it makes me feel I am in my natural habitat, warm and humid! Hilarious!
It must be the colder days arriving, making me long for the tropics..
I have more aroids to come, unfortunately some are not labelled.

Forgot to mention about the huge Anchomanes, I even didn't know what it was, so looked it up. Unfortunately I cannot photograph it in a favourable setting the background is so ugly and it is hidden all the way on the back!
You see what I mean.. Hilarious!

I've been there back today and it is really dark in that section, maybe because we're having a series of very dull days. Even with flash at full strenght the photos still come out dark and when I lighten them up it is not really nice especially when the leaves are shiny, maybe I can go back on a sunny day..

Smiling I see what you mean. The plants seems happy though. I enjoy visiting Botanical Gardens when the weather turns too.
