INSIDE THE CLIMATRON
Rare tropical plants and flowers
are protected year-round in the Climatron,
at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis.
From freezing temperatures in our coldest winters,
to record-setting heat and drought
(as we've been experiencing this summer),
the Climatron maintains optimum tropical
temperature and humidity for its rare collection
of palms, ferns and flora.
These photos were taken yesterday
on a walk through this pristine environment,
at a time when the climate inside was
considerably cooler than the temperature outside.
(Climate is indeed relative!)
