This is the greenhouse where Darwin grew all those snow peas and developed his theory of Natural Selection, as well as many other experiments.

It looks like they’re just propagating the same orchid plant/species on the right there—I wish they had a variety of species, but this is most likely logistically easier for the caretakers of the estate. Notice the pitcher plants off to the left by the open window: Darwin once stated that he could spent the rest of his life studying carnivorous plants (Drosera spp. if I remember correctly) and never tire of them.
He almost classified the venus fly trap as an animal—you can see a reference of this in one of his wife Emma’s letters to family friend, Thomas Huxley. At the time, naturalists believed that insects must have only accidentally become trapped by the plants: even Darwin’s comments that the plants may be catching them on purpose caused quite a bit of laughter among his peers.
