In the Indoor Plants Area, there are species of the Insect catching Grass, and the Dancing Orchid. In the morning, the Green World is solemn with the ringing bells and chanting from the Hongfa Temple; and it is picturesque with rippling waters and reflections of trees and pavilions on the lake.
The palm area takes on a look of typical tropic scenery with green grass, dotted with coco trees and sunflowers. In the ornamental plants area, the insectivorous plants are waiting for games with great attention, and the charming flowers of dancing orchids look like the graceful dancing steps of maids of honor. In the fossil woods, agate fossils erect proudly and billions of years cannot remove circles of the annual rings and layers of grains, which seem to tell the endless ups and downs.
