"Pecunia Europhaga, the Rarest Medical Plant" Ingolstadt Things to Do Tip by Kathrin_E
Ingolstadt Things to Do: 53 reviews and 164 photos
The rarest and most unusual plant that flourishes in the apothecary garden behind the Museum of Medical History deserves a special mentioning and a tip of its own. I have never seen this species anywhere else, it is really unique.
What does it cure? Hmmm, maybe the doctor's bank account...
Pecunia Europhaga translates to "the Euro-eating money plant". It is in fact a box to collect donations from visitors to the garden. A funny and clever one, though...
When you put a coin into the slot and press the lever to make it fall, the metal flower of the thing opens (see photo 2).
The plant is 'growing' at the entrance to the garden, impossible to overlook.
