The Congo Forest at the Bronx Zoo


saturday, i had a chance to visit the new congo exhibit at the bronx zoo.  it 
was a nice visit and it seemed that i was the only one who was as interested 
in the vegetation as in the animals.  interestingly enough they were using 
lots of Amorphophallus in the plantings (which were mostly outdoors).  there 
were at least 2 different species, but i couldnt' id them, one of them had a 
green slender inflorescence.  there was also an interesting 3-part leaf aroid 
emerging from the ground.  i assume these were all african, not asian, 
species, as i imagine they would try to mimick the central african 
environment.

also, a very pretty Impatiens with a 2-part lower lip (lavender) and a white 
dorsal, almost like an orchid.
