What It’s All About:
Plants are our friends, air purifiers, dehumidifiers and design objects. They’re also a bit tricky to keep alive.
Do you love houseplants, but can’t seem to keep them alive? This workshop will help you turn your black thumbs into green thumbs. Get ready to take your plant parenthood to the next level by understanding light, water and soil requirements for popular houseplants and how to identify and select the best plants for your home.
If your succulents have gone gooey, your Ivy dried up, and your Fiddle Leaf Fig tree has lost all of it’s leaves — you’ll walk away from this workshop understanding why. Sometimes plants die because you love them too much (overwatering). Or they go brown because they’ve crisped in front of your South facing window. Whatever the cause, you’ll go from plant murderer to novice indoor gardener in no time.
We’ll cover light, water, soil, repotting, a brief history of indoor house plants, propagating, dealing with pests and troubleshooting when your plant friends are looking sad (plus a Q&A to ask all your burning questions). Everyone will leave with an informative handout.
