    When I Called The Garden The Person I Talked To Couldnt Tell Me For Sure If Monopods Were Ok Or Not...All They Could Tell Me Is Tripods Were Not Allowed. So, Those Who Want To Try, We'll See What Happens!!! :0) See You In The Morning Should Be Fun!!!! :0)

    In response to the lighting Peter noted. There are some areas that are dark but if you use a diffuser on your flash the photos come out quite good or use a higher ISO. In addition, there are orchids in 2 of the greenhouses which have fine lighting.

    Heads Up! The exhibit lighting is mostly very dark with a few areas illuminated with small floodlights. Tripods are not allowed! We were there earlier, and we were very disappointed. You can use flash, but that is not the best way to photograph flowers.

      Two greenhouses are orchids but you can't get into any of them without a ticket.
