The mission of the HCC Greenhouse is to provide a diverse and educational plant collection for the college community in an inclusive and accessible space.
- There are around 150 different species of plants in the greenhouse
- Our most endangered plants are a Succulent Fig Cactus (Cissus adeyana) and a Mistletoe Cactus (Rhipsalis pentaptera), which are both critically endangered in the wild due to poaching and habitat loss
- Our greenhouse has produced edible fruits! We've had some common fruits such as limes, pineapples, and figs, and some uncommon fruits like the small tangy fruits of the Traveler's Friend Cactus (Ferocactus latispinus) and the sweet juicy fruit of the Monstera (Monstera deliciosa)
