Fake out all your friends with selfies of you next to blooming tropical flowers and palm trees, at New York Botanical Garden’s annual greenhouse show. You’ll experience warm rain forest mists, soaring palm trees, bright desert landscapes, orange-yellow crotons, fuchsia bromeliads and more. Think of it this way, their greenhouse is probably much more effective than your dinky little humidifier in your room.
