    The greenhouse has tropical and subtropical plants.

    In the greenhouse uses the combined action of predatory insects and mites along with oil and soap sprays to control plant pests such as mealybugs and aphids. Large insect pests are controlled by the Tokay frogs and geckos that live free in their interior. This allows the greenhouse to function as a mini-ecosystem where plants and animals live together for mutual benefit. The mutually beneficial relationship is evident in two of the three fish ponds, which operate without filtration. Due to the presence of a sculpture, the pond contains a filtration system.

    There are two sculptures inside the greenhouse. One is a characteristic glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly called "The Huntington Museum of Art Tower"; the other is a more traditional bronze sculpture by Harriet Whitney Frishmuth.
