Event description

Description

Bring a bit of the jungle into your home! Join Rock Paper Plant for a botanical evening learning how to mount and care for orchids. In their natural environment, many orchids grow on rocks or trees, not in the pots you see at the garden store. The founders, Alicia and Cielo will show you how to grow these plants vertically with a little bit of moss and tree bark. You will leave with a beautiful living wall hanging and all the knowledge needed to keep it alive.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN: In this workshop, you will learn:

  • Learn how to pick a healthy orchid from the store and assess its roots

  • Understand the fundamentals of orchid care -- light, watering, and how to encourage new flowers -- for moth orchids, the most commonly available type of orchid

  • Discover the special properties of orchids that make it possible to grow them mounted on bark

  • Make and take home their own orchid mounted to a piece of lightweight, sustainably-sourced cork bark

No experience or green thumbs needed! All materials, including plants and care instructions, will be provided.

All attendees will receive 10% off any day-of Steadfast Supply purchase.
