In the Pyramid
The Tropical Pyramid is 7100 square feet in size, standing 79 feet high, allowing room for many large tropical plants and trees to grow. Tropical climates are home to several plants that are often used to make medicines.
The jungle-like environment is lush, green and fragrant. Air is humid and warm, allowing plants such as palm trees, banana trees, vines and the rare Putrella (a corpse plant) to survive.
A waterfall cascades into the centre of the pyramid where small fish and water lilies make their home. An orchid hut houses many orchid varieties, some of which perfume the air.
