This will be a short post, simply because I didn’t take many good pictures in this cactus house. For some reason, the light was kind of dim the day I went in the CBG cactus house, and very few of my pictures turned out. Normally cactus houses are bright and sunny; great places to take pictures. It wasn’t my day, I guess.
The cactus house seemed more like a cactus corridor. One side of the walkway was a display of large cacti, with a (typical) desert mural behind the plants. The other side was a lengthy glass display case filled with tiny cacti, the size of which you might expect on someone’s windowsill.
I did manage to get a few pictures of the mature cacti.
In case any of you were wondering what exactly makes a cactus (not all spiny plants are cacti) a cactus, I snapped a photo of the info-board in the cactus corridor.
The next post will be on a slightly more humid glasshouse in the CBG. One of my favorite greenhouses in New Zealand… there are plenty of bananas growing inside!
