Secret Life of Trees
It’s not easy being a tree. Get literally inside a tree structure and learn how these green giants rise above challenges, to thrive in tropical countries like Singapore.
World of Palms
Meet a colourful array of tropical lowland palms—each with a unique form, shape, and stature. Find out about the many uses of these incredibly versatile plants—for shelter, fruit, starch, and of course, oil.
They thrive in dark, damp conditions and often go unnoticed, but decomposers actually play a vital role in ecology. At Understorey, uncover all about these amazing organisms—how they break down dead leaves, twigs and flowers to produce nutrients for the ecosystem.
Fruits and Flowers
Brighten your day with an abundance of colour and life! Infuse your spirit with the sweet scents of blossoms in season and whet your appetite with tantalising fruits growing in this cheery garden.
Web of Life
Don’t be surprised if you meet the “orangutan”, “pangolin”, and “hornbill”. The Web of Life features life-sized animal topiaries, impressively woven from fig. And with a diversity of fig species such as the Banyan Tree and Broad Leaf Fig, this lively garden is simply fig-tastic!
