To support the level of biodiversity in The Spheres, the Amazon horticulture team works behind-the-scenes in a nearby greenhouse in Woodinville, WA. Plants routinely rotate between The Spheres and the greenhouses throughout the seasons. Like The Spheres, this greenhouse is filled with cloud forest species from around the world, from tiny begonias and orchids to large tree ferns and aloes. Explore some of the greenhouse plants in the gallery below.
The plants in The Spheres are organized into a number of collections. From the vertical gardens of the Canyon Living Wall to the flora-filled Fernery, each collection provides unique green spaces for employees and visitors to learn and be curious. The Spheres feature a vivarium– a living wall / aquarium hybrid that keeps freshwater critters under semi-natural conditions.
