Welcome to the SFASU Biology Conservatory Plant Collection! (Version 21.12)
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 conservatory collection of approximately 124 mostly tropical and subtropical taxa from 42 plant families. It provides our community with access to a flora otherwise not found locally. 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 complete set of imagery for the collection and the photos are of actual specimens (regardless of their condition) from the SFASU Biology greenhouse. Angiosperm Family circumscriptions follow the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification (APG 1998, 2003, 2009, 2016).
