medical and useful succulent plants
some exhibits (Agave-products)
Many succulent plants have a long tradition in medical and other uses.
One of the oldest medical plants is ALOE VERA. Others like HOODIA or RHODIOLA are less known. Fruits of many CACTUS species are edible. The AGAVE serves as source for fibres and also for the famous tequila.
In our exhibition you learn about uses and you will also find the plants involved. There is a booklet (A4, many color pictures, 40 pages) with the topics of the exhibition available at the collection for 8 CHF only.
Admission to the exhibit and collection is free. This special exhibit will be open to the public until March 2005. We are open all days, also during christmas time.
