Sharing his tiny central London flat with 500 houseplants, Kew-trained botanist James Wong knows a thing or two about creating jungles indoors.

From tiny moss terrariums and planted tanks to indoor lily ponds, fern-encrusted fountains and lush living walls, James' talk will take you on a virtual tour of all his experiments with houseplants and reveal the tips and tricks to create them.

If the winter weather is getting you down, come and escape with a night of jungle exploration.
