Don’t Throw Away Your Orchid
Registration for this class is closed.
Phalaenopsis are the most popular orchid because the beautiful flowers last for months. Unfortunately, many of these orchids are thrown away after all the flowers drop. Orchids are perennials – they will grow and flower every year for many years! Explore the mystery around the orchid plant family and orchid growing with orchid grower Dr. Dotty Woodson. Discover where and how orchids grow in nature and how you can grow orchids on your windowsill, in your greenhouse, and even outdoors in the summer. This course will cover orchid growing, potting, dividing, watering, fertilizing, propagating, collecting, and maintaining orchids for many years.
