Investigation of unusual plants

The Garden of Oddness is the nickname for greenhouse 10: a mysterious greenhouse within the Jardin botanique. Rumor has it that it includes a top-secret laboratory in which strange plants are studied… What does this research consist of? What botanical secrets do they reveal? Pay this greenhouse a visit to find out!
