Tropical garden

Kampot river

GreenHouse was originally a small durian plantation, with 11 trees producing this Khmer favourite every year. Some mangosteen and rambutan trees were also already present in the original plantation.

Over the years, we added to the fruit collection with banana, papaya, passion, lime, mango and coconuts. Giving us more than 20 different trees producing fruit all year round.

We have also collected more than 100 different species of plant, such as cacti, fern and aloe vera. We are home to one of the largest orchid collections of Cambodia, with more than 50 different orchids and vanilla.

Moringa trees were added more recently, and we are now using their leaves in both our kitchen and our bar. In 2017 an aquaponic system was created to allow us to grow our own organic herbs.. Finally as Kampot is the home of pepper, we also have 8 pepper plants growing here. Pepper being a spice we showcase throughout our menu, in all of its varieites.

Fauna

There is always a lot of wildlife hanging around GreenHouse. If you are patient and a keen observer, you will be able to spot many varieties of local bird, lizard, butterfly, dragon fly, squirrel, as well as the occasional snake or spider.

We have about 50 Koy fish living peacefully in our pond, which is naturally filtered using aquatic plants. The running water and lush greenery of that space provides a nice and cool atmosphere on a hot day.
