Orchids of the Amazon
Look out for 50 varieties of epiphytic orchids in Cloud Forest’s new exhibition ‘Orchids of the Amazon’. The Amazonian rainforest is home to more than 700 varieties of orchids so this new exhibit shows just a small yet important fraction of  these orchids with interesting and unusual features like the Polycycnis Silvana, which bears numerous flowers which have arching columns that resemble the necks of graceful swans. With the Amazon rainforest being home to a wide variety of biodiversity, the display also includes replicas of animals of the region such as capybaras, sloths and macaws. A part of the biannual changing orchid displays in Cloud Forest, Orchids of the Amazon is the second orchid display for this year, and will run until March 29 next year.

Alongside the Orchids of the Amazon display is the Portraits of a Miniverse photo exhibition by Singaporean photographer Shannon Heng. In this exhibition, photographs of miniature orchids which are endemic to the Amazon region showcase the unexpected beauty of such tiny blooms, the smallest of which only measures 3mm. Portraits of a Miniverse will run until February 16 next year.

Tree
The Tree virtual reality experience at Cloud Forest is created by Milica Zec and Winslow Porter, in partnership with the Rainforest Alliance. The experience leverages on stimulating the four senses of sight, touch, smell and sound to enhance the user’s immersion in becoming a tree. Since its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Tree has been showcased around the world in countries like USA, Hong Kong, Dubai, Denmark and the Netherlands. This year, it has travelled to the World Economic Forum in Switzerland as well as the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
Cloud Forest’s Crystal Mountain section will house two booths where visitors can experience Tree. Tickets are priced at $5, which does not include the admission charge to Cloud Forest.

Sassy Mama tips: Bring sweaters it is deliciously cold in the Cloud Forest conservatory. We thought an amble through the Cloud Forest marvelling at all the stunning orchids and plants was a great thing to do with out-of-town guests who can’t handle the Singapore heat!
