The Greenhouse is home to a variety of plants from a range of different environments. The QR Code project allows visitors to learn more about the plants that fill the Greenhouse. Using a smart phone, visitors can scan the barcode on the plant of interest. The linked page offers information on habitat, evolutionary adaptations, interesting facts, and more! No smart phone? Not a problem. There’s a binder located on the Greenhouse Bookshelf with pages to all of the coded plants. You’d be amazed at some of the information that comes from even the smallest of plants! Get started today.
You can access the Greenhouse through the John Roach Center on North Campus. The greenhouse is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11.30 to 1.30.
