Orchid Afternoon: Orchids for Beginners

Studio Arts Workshop

Sunday, April 14, 2019 - 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Code: 1K00JS
Schlerianna Inflorescence Phalaenopsis

Join an orchid care expert for a fun, informative afternoon about America’s favorite household plant. This class delves into the origins of our love for orchids, explains how they grow in their native environments, and provides beginner care instructions to keep your orchids blooming in your home.

In a hands-on activity, learn how to repot a Phalaenopsis orchid, one of the easiest orchids to raise indoors. Orchids and potting materials are provided and yours to take home.

Participants may also bring in orchids from their own collections for a question-and-answer session with the instructor, during which light refreshments are served.
