Germany trip 2016, part 7: Singapore Airport

Back in Australia! We again flew via Singapore, and this time I had the camera with me.

Above the Butterfly Garden in the airport. It is a large open space across both levels of the building.

There are, obviously, butterflies. Apart from the various plants growing in the garden they are provided with cut-flowers like these and pineapple slices, both of which are placed on tables where the travellers can watch with ease.

While many plants were clearly chosen for having flowers adapted to butterfly pollination, there are also many that are simply ornamental. Such as this Selaginella, which of course does not have any flowers at all.

And in a previous post I already mentioned the carnivorous Nepenthes. Again the flowers are not precisely butterfly-attractants, but they are interesting.
