Supertrees of Singapore #ThursdayTreeLove

 

Image for Supertrees of SingaporeAlmost two years to the day, I was at Singapore’s Gardens By The Bay. Visiting this man made wonder after a day at Singapore’s famed Botanical Gardens was a bit of a downer because even though the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest were fabulous, it was a bit like costume jewellery :fabulous but fake. But in

In hindsight, though, the Supertree Grove is indeed a wonder. Did you know that :

  • 11 of the Supertrees are embedded with environmentally sustainable functions like photovoltaic cells to harvest solar energy.
  • Over 162,900 plants comprising more than 200 species and varieties of bromeliads, orchids, ferns and tropical flowering climbers are planted on the Supertrees.

Now that alone makes this garden worth a visit. Isn’t it?
