Arabotanica, Teresopolis

(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
You will smell their heady perfume as you arrive, and, upon entering the first greenhouse, prepare to be amazed by the beauty of the huge array of orchids in beautiful colors and wondrous variety. Three other industrial-sized greenhouses contain seedlings, from which expert horticulturalists create rare, hybrid species. All of the plants are for sale, and prices can reach thousands of dollars. However, Arabotanica is more than just a nursery and runs a series of courses and lectures promoting home cultivation; it is a main point of reference for orchid-enthusiasts the world over.

  • Interesting place, with a great conservation at the store. We were greeted by a very friendly and cool dog. We were a little lost in the parking lot without knowing if we could get in or not in the greenhouse. Follow the path of flowers, everything has to be a short but magnificent walks, but seemed to be in retirement. The store very organized with espresso coffee, sweets and of course the great variety of flowers. Tip: you could have someone in the parking lot to receive visitors and guides them.

  • The site is well maintained, seedlings of various species of orchids, Begonias, actually a large store of plants, a nice site, but nothing that deserves greater prominence.
