Harvesting the ripe fruit from our Monstera deliciosa plant in the tropical room. 💚The fruit of the Swiss Cheese Plant grows in a cob-like structure and will soften when ripe. The green caps along the fruit will remove easily, leaving the soft tropical tasting fruit beneath. If consumed too early the fibers from an unripe fruit can cause serious irritation in the throat 🤢.

Our toddler came for a visit to escape the rain today and had a fantastic time smelling fragrant plants and watching the fish in the pond. Thank you for being a great community asset!
Thank You for giving one of the best "living" gifts ever! In the fall of 2016, I attended your free tree giveaway and took home a small, about foot and a half tall Fig Tree sapling. I was hopeful that it would survive the winter and grow tall and healthy. This was my first ever tree! To my extreme delight, my Fig Tree not only grew, it got HUGE and it has been bearing hundreds of figs! They are delicious!!! Thank you! This is my tree's only 3rd summer anh just look at it!!!! 🌱 This is Spring of 2017 (after surviving its 1st winter)
Peace&Blessing's Thank's...
Many species of tropical plants. The staff are very friendly. The old iron work conservatory is beautiful. Only wish there was a little cafe.
One of Baltimore's most beautiful spots. There's always something new to see as the plants grow and bloom and change through the seasons.
This is great! Is this being done in phases?
Loved the decorations this year! Beautiful :-) Everyone should check the Annual Holiday Show out before it ends!!
This is a wonderful and one of the first conservatory's in the USA, right here in Baltimore, Md. Rawlings Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. Educational programs throughout the year.
Can you identify this flower for me??
