Welcome to the SFASU Biology Greenhouse Plant Collection! (Version 21.11)

The Biology Department Greenhouse at Stephen F. Austin State University provides space for teaching and research in Botany and the plant sciences. At its core is a modest permanent collection of approximately 115 mostly tropical and subtropical taxa from 39 plant families. It provides the SFASU community with access to a flora otherwise not found localy. It includes both common houseplants as well as more rare specimens. In addition to a collection of humid tropical plants we have a number of cacti and succulents. This gallery provides a nearly complete set of imagery for all the taxa in the collection; the photos are of actual specimens (regardless of their condition) from the SFASU Biology greenhouse. Botanical nomenclature follows The ITIS database where possible. Angiosperm Family circumscriptions follow the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification (APG 1998, 2003, 2009, 2016).
