The multiplication greenhouse
Greenhouses are fundamental structures for botanical gardens; in addition to those with a purely ostensive function, the Gardens also make use of structures intended for the maintenance and multiplication of plants and to support the research carried out in the laboratories.
Built in 2019 with the contribution of the Compagnia di SanPaolo and characterized by an essential and functional architecture, the multiplication greenhouse is the most recent in the botanical garden.
Its main destination is to host the sowing of annual plants and to give winter shelter to potted specimens placed outside in the summer, such as tanks with aquatic plants and some large succulents.
The greenhouse is also used periodically to place plants subject to research and experimentation.
Recently, spaces have been allocated in the structure to accommodate the collection of cold greenhouse orchids in suitable microclimatic conditions, which has been enriched with new specimens donated to the Botanical Garden.
