Do you know about the U of I conservatory?

Last week the University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences posted these pictures of the Plant Sciences Laboratory. So many of the comments were people who had never heard about it. This little piece of tropical paradise is full of tropical plants, ferns, cacti, carnivorous, and aquatic plants. The observatory is free, open to students and the community, and is a perfect place to spend a day escaping the cold. You can see even more pictures on their Instagram page.

Looking through the glass door of the U of I conservatory. The word conservatory is in black upper case letters on the door. There are glass walls and the ceiling it is full of plants and trees.
