Orchid Repotting 101 | In-person class

February 23, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Orchids make wonderful gifts for anyone who wants to bring a splash of color and interest into their home. But what happens after your orchid is done blooming? How do you keep your beloved orchid alive so that it will continue to flower year after year?

Repotting is one of the most important aspects of orchid care, but it requires a different approach than you would take to repot most houseplants. Join us for a demonstration on the basics of how to repot some of the most common orchids. Along the way, you will learn what makes orchids unique, and you will leave the class with the confidence you need to help your orchids thrive for years to come.  

Members: $35
Non-Members: $60
