Orchids are one of the more beautiful and captivating plants you can grow in your own home. In this workshop you will learn what an orchid is, how they grow in their natural habitat, how orchids differ from the average houseplant, and how we care for them in our homes. Participants will learn all the basic requirements to successfully grow and re-bloom their orchids. The workshop concludes with a hands-on re-potting activity. All participants will receive one blooming orchid plant to take home. Admission Included.
