Orchids 101

Saturday, May 6, 10am to 12pm

What do you do when the label on your beautiful orchid says “easy to care for,” but your experience tells a different story? Before you toss it into the compost pile, join former horticulturist Jo Phillips as she goes over the basics of caring for Phaleonopsis orchids. Topics will include how to choose the right potting mixture, preferred fertilizers, creating the right environment to ensure blooming, and dealing with possible pests. Participants will each take home a beautiful orchid. If you have an orchid that you would like help with, feel free to bring it as well. $45 per person.
