LEGO carnivorous plants at Cloud Forest

I was at the Clould Forest at Gardens By The Bay last week when I spotted this.


Hey, nice carnivorous plants. But if you take a closer look, these aren’t real carnivorous plants. In fact they are made from LEGO. Nice.







I’m not sure how long will this exhibit be there. So do check out soon.
