Exotic plants exhibition at the Botanical Garden

Exotic plants exhibition, the XLVIIIth edition, will be organized in the compartments of the Greenhouse Complex, starting on February 4, at 11:00 a.m., until February 26, at 5:00 p.m.
Having become a tradition during the winter period, the event takes place in a space impregnated with specific Asian coordinates, because the origin of most plants, but also of the elements with symbolic value, come from this area with a long history and a world-wide reference culture.
The specimens of azaleas and camellias from the garden’s collections impress with their chromatic diversity and the sizes of the plants, being noted in the arrangements inspired by Asian gardens. Along with these, the croton specimens (Codiaeum variegatum), originating from areas with a warm climate, similar to the group of rhododendrons called Vireya, stand out due to the colors of their leaves.
The novelty elements will be noticed in the exhibition space animated by numerous decorative elements made with passion and skill by the landscapers who take care of these plants, all being integrated into a unitary design with influences found in the Japanese philosophy of the five elements defined by the earth, water, fire, wind and spirit. A landscape representation of these elements is suggested with the help of decorative plant species through leaves with which the vegetable walls were made or with seeds, fruits and vegetable waste with which the allegory suggesting the spirit was made.

The entire composition can be considered a specific snapshot of the Asian mountain vegetation that naturally fits into the diversity of habitats suggested by other collections of exotic plants grown in greenhouses. Species of begonias, peperomias, ferns, orchids, earrings, bromeliads will be exhibited from humid tropical environments, and cacti from arid areas will be highlighted, as well as succulent plants from the genera Agave, Aloe, Crassula, Euphorbia, Kalanchoe, Pelargonium, Sansevieria, Sedum etc.
Fascinating, but less understood are the living environments in which plants with mixed nutrition, known as carnivores, develop. From this category, exemplars from the genera Drosera (dew of the sky), Pinguicula (fatty leaf), Nepenthes (monkey cup) or Sarracenia (pitcher plant) are exhibited in dioramas.
The visiting schedule is daily, between 9.00-16.00.
Ticket is 20 lei, both for visiting the exhibition stands and the external sections.
The price of a ticket for students and pensioners, respectively groups of at least 10 people, is 10 lei.
The individual or group ticket for students is 5 lei. Photography is free.
