The Collection is open not only to experts, but also to students and public. There are tens of excursions every year. Apart from the scientific purposes, its principal function is the chance to watch a large number of plants in one place, as the majority of them is hardly accessible in wild nature, or they exist only in a few localities. Everyone can thus observe the beauty and diversity of aquatic and wetland plants and at the same time they „stay dry“.
Apart from this, we offer selected interesting plant species from tropical and subtropical regions of the southern hemisphere and since 2016 there has been an exposition of carnivorous plants from around the world.
It is most interesting to visit the Collection in the early summer, when even the plants that are in dormancy under water come into bloom. In winter, the reservoirs are covered and the outdoor exposition is not accessible.
The Collection is open to public daily from May through the end of September, from 8am to 6pm.
All plants are labelled and you can take an individual tour of the Collection. The exposition is supplemented with information boards that present the visitors with some interesting things about the observed plants.
