Sub Antarctic Plant House and the Catcus house - Botanical Gardens, Hobart...


These sunflowers are at the end of the veggie garden, going into the Sub Antarctic Plant House. 


The bubbles on the pictures are water vapour, that was going all around the room.  There were paintings of arctic scenes on the wall, and you could hear the sounds of the animals. 
 


Hobart is a port destination for ships (usually painted red) going to and from the Antarctic.  Also, the ships from Whale Wars use Hobart as a port destination. 

 
Even the entrances are all fully planted.
 
 
Catci must grow very well here - the bottom row of windows were usually open, I guess to control humidity.
