The Palm house contained a waterlily pond surrounded by container grown orchids, caladium, palms, and a vines across the glass roof. The footprint of pond is no longer visible since road grading above the fernery.
The Palm House, Rose House and the Carnation House no longer exist after they were removed in 1941 due to structural deterioration. Only the Fernery remains.
