About Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge
There are more than 1,000 species of plants in the Crystal Bridge, representing plants from every continent except Antarctica. They are located in two habitat regions in the conservatory.
The Tropical Rain Forest Zone, called the Wet Mountain, is located on the south end of the Conservatory. Plants here come from Amazonia, Central Africa, Southeast Asia and the South Pacific Islands where rain falls year-round. These plants are watered every day.
The Dry Tropical Zone, called the Dry Mountain, is on the north end of the Conservatory. These plants are put through a drought from November to March, followed by regular watering during the summer months to simulate the weather patterns in their native areas. Most of these specimens come from South Africa, Madagascar and Mexico.
