Victoria amazonica (Amazon Water Lily)

Conservatory of Flowers
San Francisco, California - USA

Over the summer I took a trip to San Francisco, California for the Bitcoin 2019 Conference. During the trip, @nicollefiallo and I took a walk through Golden Gate Park where we stumbled upon the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers. The Conservatory is home to over 2,000 species of plants & flowers. The aquatic plants in the picture above are called Victoria amazonica, or Amazon Water Lilys. They have massive floating lily pads that look as if they could be sat on and used as a raft.

I highly recommend visiting The Conservatory of Flowers if you ever find yourself walking through Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. It was amazing to see so many species from around the world all in one place.
