Located in a state-of-the-art facility in the Ho Science Center, Colgate University's greenhouse contains approximately 1,000 plants used to demonstrate diversity, facilitate teaching, and provide color and visual interest throughout the year. Our diverse collection contains six separate plant zones; the Tropical House, two Temperate Houses, and three Research Houses. Some of our most popular plants include ferns, orchids, cactus, succulents, flowering vines, and more!
Colgate Biology students work closely with faculty on graduate-level greenhouse research projects throughout the year!
Student groups have the opportunity to plant their own seeds, engage in a scavenger hunt for various species, and learn about the life cycle of different plants!
