My visit to the CBS Conservatory

Hello guys!

I visited the College of Biological Sciences (CBS) Greenhouse last Friday and would like to share my experience with you. The CBS Greenhouse is located  at 1534 Lindig Street on the U of M's St. Paul campus. The public hours are 9am to 3:30 pm from Monday to Friday(Closed on holidays and weekends).

Everyone is welcome! It only takes a couple of minutes walking from the campus connecor stop to the greenhouse.

Here is the main entrance of the greenhouse.

The CBS Conservatory is a biodiverse collection of plant species from all over the world. You can find more than 1200 plant species here.  Qi_0102.jpg

You can also find a brief introduction to each ecosystem on the door.   

This is my favorite plant:Mimosa pudica. When you touch it, the compound leaves will fold inward and droop. How amazing it is!

Greenhouse is a great place to hang out, especially during winter time(warm!). Every time I am surrounded by these green plants and lovely flowers, I feel happy and relaxed.  You should not miss the chance to hang out with these lovely plants!
