Bloom! Plantkeepers of the Bay

Meet our shy, mysterious Plantkeepers who have been living in the Gardens & taking care of our plants!

Gardens by the Bay just turned 8, and look at these Plantkeepers gathered in celebration, reading about how it all started for the Gardens! 

These Plantkeepers have hidden away from human sight for the past eight years, but during the circuit breaker, they grew puzzled by the quietness of Gardens by the Bay. These creatures draw energy from people visiting the Gardens, and with the visitors gone, they are feeling a little sad. 

With less people in the Gardens, they have decided to reveal themselves and help our horticulturists keep the Gardens thriving. 

They are also hoping that by revealing themselves and sharing their stories, they can bring joy to visitors at home! 

Look out for more stories featuring Gardens by the Bay’s Plantkeepers in the coming weeks! 


Meet the Plantkeepers

You’ve met Everlasting Eric, Darcy the Dragonfly and Sindora the Sepetir Tree last week. This week, meet Sprout the Otter, Olivia the Olive, and Ricky-Rhodo! Stay tuned next week to find out why they are revealing themselves after all this time!

 

Sprout the Otter

Sprout the Otter

  • Sprout, the first otter born on the shores of Waterfront Promenade, has a bold and daring spirit that sees him volunteering for adventurous tasks, such as pruning air plants on the tallest Supertrees. He occasionally needs to be reined in by the older Plantkeepers, but they love him all the same. Sprout has an eternal plant growing from his head, which blooms into a flower when he meets someone he likes, which can be embarrassing!

Olivia the Olive

Olivia the Olive

  • Olivia the Olive, kind and gentle, has stewardship of Flower Dome. Not only does she watch over the plants under her care, she welcomes guest flowers such as Tulips, Sakuras, and Orchids, who visit the Flower Dome during the annual changing floral displays.

Sindora the Sepetir Tree

Sindora the Sepetir Tree

  • Sindora is a well-meaning and kind-hearted tree with a wealth of experience. With her knowledge, she is the go-to Plantkeeper for advice when plants have ailments and sicknesses. She loves birds, and keeps a nest in her foliage for birds that need a safe space. Sindora can be a bit of a worrywart at times, but the other Plantkeepers are there to reassure and support her. 

Ricky-Rhodo!

Ricky-Rhodo!

  • Richy-Rhodo is here, and he is loud and proud! A protector of Cloud Forest, he loves to climb the cool and moist slopes of Cloud Mountain, exploring hidden nooks and treasures. Ricky is fond of Olivia the Olive, and often tries to woo her with gifts of orchids, ferns and other unique plants in the Cloud Forest. 

Everlasting Eric

Everlasting Eric

  • In the early days of Gardens by the Bay, Supertrees were created. As the first of their kind, these Supertrees watched as shrubs, trees, and saplings were planted to create a garden from scratch. The biggest Supertree, Everlasting Eric, created magical Plantkeepers to take care of new plants. These Plantkeepers ensure that these plants in Gardens by the Bay stay happy and adjust to their new home.

     

    Everlasting Eric is the tallest Supertree in Gardens by the Bay. Eric is creative and forward-looking, not at all set in old ways. He believes that the Gardens will continue flourishing so long as visitors and plants can draw positive energy from each other and help one another. Because there is so much on his mind, Eric can often lose track of time and be a tad frazzled!

Darcy the Dragonfly

Darcy the Dragonfly

  • Darcy is a dragonfly that is fastidious in keeping her lake home clean! Everlasting Eric likes how much Darcy cares for the plants by her lake habitat, so Eric made her the first Plantkeeper. Darcy is very neat and tidy and likes to remind her friends to keep their environment spotless, much to their annoyance sometimes. In her spare time, Darcy likes to perform acrobatic flying tricks along the surface of Dragonfly Lake, as a way to impress her friends.
