At the Conservatory of Flowers

The left side of the building, which was constructed in 1878.

In the Aquatic plants room.

At the special exhibit: Wicked Plants!  A compendium of poisonous plant life… the jars housed the seeds of plants that were too “dangerous” for the actual exhibit.  This included the coca plant, just in case anyone got the crazy idea to ransack the conservatory and make drugs?
