This new floral exhibition allows students to immerse themselves in a spectrum of visible delights surrounded by flowers of every colour and beyond. inBLOOM features over 20,000 plants across one of the largest indoor green walls in Australia.

Every flower is a machine designed for reproduction and survival. Competing for attention, they signal brazenly using colour, shape and scent.
