The New York Botanical Garden  A museum of plants 🌱, an educational institution 📚, and a scientific research organization in the Bronx 🔬

We were honored to have NYBG’s Thain Forest here in the Bronx inducted into the @oldgrowthforestnetwork last week during a beautiful ceremony attended by over 60 supporters of our mission. The peak fall colors were icing on the cake! #regram

This one should be easy! We’re continuing our daily countdown to the November 17 opening of this year’s Holiday Train Show with another close-up of one of our landmark replicas. Can you spot the acorn caps and other familiar plant parts? Tag a friend and guess what this building is for a chance to win tickets to see it in person. #htsnybg

The oak (Quercus), seen here, represents strength and resilience, and it was the perfect symbol for the Garden's recent Sustainability Summit. It was a privilege to have such a powerful lineup of visionary leaders and innovators discussing environmental stewardship and sustainable development. Thank you to our Borough President, @ruben_diaz_jr, for being a champion of green energy in the Bronx; and to our Honored Guest, Lord Norman Foster, as well as everyone else who made so vividly clear that to succeed we must invest in nature.

It's tall, it's iconic, it's decidedly Art Deco. We're kicking off a countdown to this Saturday's opening of our 27th annual Holiday Train Show with this familiar New York landmark. Tag a friend and guess what this building is for a chance to win tickets to see it in person. #htsnybg

The #forest floor is teeming with life. Decaying logs and leaves provide habitat for #moss, #lichen, #fungi, and #salamanders.

Our upcoming #nybgadulted Bonsai for Beginners students will learn the fundamentals of turning ordinary nursery stock into a living work of art. Aspiring mini-tree sculptors can check out nybg.org to sign up. #bonsai

Kiku continues into next week, but there’s not much time left to see it. These Japanese chrysanthemums are an entirely different experience in person! (📸 by @mco_photo)

Wandering is good. 👟🌳🌤

The snake plant (#Sansevieriatrifasciata) is every New Yorker's go-to survivor. It's nigh unkillable, no matter how poor your green thumb! Here it is in our Haupt Conservatory, and don’t miss it over on @thesill’s story feed today. Keep sharing photos of your favorite plants with #gardentosill—if you're following both of our accounts, you might be the one to win prizes like NYBG tickets and gift cards from The Sill! 🌱🍃🌱

Chrysanthemum ‘Derek Birkcumshaw’ is filling in for the sun on this grey and rainy fall day! The #chrysanthemums are in full bloom in the Nolen Greenhouses. The current exhibit, Kiku: A Spotlight on Tradition showcases the spectacular and elaborate Japanese Chrysanthemums that have been grown and trained here over the past decade. #kiku
