If you walk into the Bellagio Conservatory, you'll see it decked out for Chinese New Year with red lanterns and a field of gold flowers. The exhibits change for seasons and major holidays. With flying reindeer, human-sized snails and ants, and snowball-throwing penguins, the Conservatory attracts locals and tourists alike. But who stages this giant production? Who designs it, and arranges every flower down to the last petal? We talk to the man behind the Bellagio's magic.
Andres "Andy" Garcia, Dir of Horticulture, Bellagio Conservatory
