Still 7 September 2015 in the botanical garden. Apart from the fish in the big AquaHortus exhibition, and the reptiles and amphibians in that exhibition, there were, of course, the plants as well. Like these carnivorous plants on the first story of the entrance building.
A bit further, more carnivorous plants in individual pots. Like this Drosera bicolor, from Australia.
Outside, these flowers of a plant, better suited to northern hemisphere temperate zone September temperatures: Acis autumnalis – Autumn snowflake.
Finally, to the new Chinese herb garden part of the botanical garden.
In a small rectangular pond there, Indian lotus grows. Big water drops on its leaves.
Love the colors in the second one!
Yes, this Drosera has conspicuous colours; maybe that helps attracting insects?
Thanks for your kind words!
