SARASOTA – Plants from Tampa are now in Sarasota.
A former MOSI exhibit moves to Sarasota’s Selby Gardens because MOSI downsized and can no longer keep the exhibit.
The exhibit brings 60 different carnivorous plants that range from Venus flytraps to Bladderworts.
The exhibit, originally commissioned for the Museum of Science and Industry in Tampa by Jeanne Coleman and her husband.
“I knew there would be no one to take care of the exhibit and I started calling around to different places to see if somebody would take this wonderful exhibit we had donated for education for children,” said Coleman. “Selby said yes they would take the exhibit.”
