Jade vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys)

This plant is a climbing vine from the tropical rainforests. It is related to the garden broad bean - you will see this very clearly if you compare the flowers. In the wild it’s an indigenous species of the Philippines, where it is pollinated by bats.

Feathery mammillaria (Mammillaria plumosa)

This plant is very rare in the wild. The common name refers to the shape of the typical plant extensions. Above these grow soft thorns. These protect the plant from the intense desert sun, but are not prickly. You will find it in our Desert Glasshouse.
