Since 1886, the Vacherot family has been driven by a passion for tropical orchids. This tour leads you through the greenhouses where you will learn about the plant’s life cycle and how to grow this flower that can happen to be a little bit difficult. And innovation is an integral part of things here – the laboratory can create new varieties in vitro, and it works for the preservation of plant species that are threatened with extinction in their natural habitat!
Depending on the season, you will admire in the greenhouse different species with often shimmering colors and sometimes surprising scents!
