We leave the outdoor gardens and enter the conservatory building complex. This is a series of themed rooms and working areas. We enter at the west end of the complex, a large room called the Cascade Garden. The ceiling is about 50' high, and the room is full of tropical plants. You'll hear the flow of water and the hum of pumps and fans. You'll also hear the murmuring of other visitors and some oohs and wows as we view the exotic plants. At 1:34 the misting system kicks in with a clank and a hiss. There are bits of conversation overheard as we climb a winding path through the room. At around 1:55 we approach a waterfall and a pool at the upper end of this room. We cross a long glass hallway (the Fern Passage) into the Growing House, which is filled with flats of young plants, at around 2:38. You'll hear different fans running- sadly, there were a lot of handling noises on the mic here so I had to fade out.
