The huge greenhouses. People having special interests in visiting the greenhouses, must know that most of them are open only for a few hours per day and only on few days of the week. This is a pity, considering the many rare species that are contained inside.

 

Succulent plants Conophytum
Haworthia A greenhouse with succulent plants. Here, various species belonging to the families of Crassulaceae, Mesembryanthemaceae and Liliaceae. In particular, some Conophytum, Lithops, Hawortia and Crassula.

 

Euphorbia obesa v. monstruosa A greenhouse containing cacti, a collection of caudiciforms (above picture: a caudiciform accumulates water at the base of the trunk, which becomes huge if compared to the overall plant's size) and many Euphorbia (on the left, an Euphorbia obesa v. monstruosa). Most of these plants are rare and several are endangered in nature.

 

Viscum minimum
An Euphorbia affected by Viscum minimum. The Viscum minimum is a parassite growing inside the host, presenting small red fruits (as visible in the middle of the picture).
