Oh yeah.. I could dig it. Heck.. I like just going to the Rainforest Cafe!

I would imagine one would have to be careful with electronics in there tho.

I realize there's a bit of an English language barrier happening here for you but yes, lots of plants have been killed or gone extinct but not the plants in the domes.

The domes and the plants in them are natural choices for that location of the Pacific north west. They picked a good city to do that because of Seattle's supportive natural rainforest climate and light conditions.

The domes are built based on this principle: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biophilia_hypothesis

Nothing like a tropical rainforest. I just came back from the Amazon. If you're not getting mosquitos, chiggers, botflies, wasps that look like flies, etc, you're in no tropical rainforest.

Nope. Biophiliacs don't think that way.
