The glass-roofed Conservatory at Biltmore Estate

I’d love to have a glass house for my tropical plants, but that won’t happen anytime soon. At Biltmore Estate, there is a glass-roofed Conservatory that houses large collection of palms, orchids, ferns, cactus, and other foliage plants.

I’m so fascinating with this orchid, the Dancing Lady Orchid Plant (Yellow Oncidium orchid), which has multiple blooms of bright yellow with a reddish brown center, it‘s an exotic orchid plants from Hawaii.

And the rest of the orchids are equally as beautiful.

This one is called Pachystachys lutea, also known as the golden shrimp plant, and I believed it also goes by the name of Lollipop flowers.

This one looks like it has been beaten up pretty bad.

  1. what camera do you use??? 😛

    the subject of your photography are gorgeous, just as gorgeous as the way you rake them!

  2. I love the lantern flowers. I think even more so then the orchids. I’ve never seen anything like it.

    We have a glass observatory in SF Botanical Garden, but it’s not half as nice as this. Beautiful… 🙂

    1. Salat, the lantern flowers are pretty, made me think of small bells hanging from the plant. I think this is the nicest Conservatory I’ve been to, the one in Washington DC is nice, but not as nice as this one. They’ve a hot house just for the cactus plants, real nice.
