Growing & Repotting Orchids

Bookmark and Share

Orchids are one of the most popular houseplants – for good reason! They are elegant and graceful, yet easy to care for, and can bloom for weeks, even months, at a time. An orchid is also a great gift that lasts much longer than cut flowers, and with patience, they can bloom again and again. In this free class, you’ll learn about different varieties of orchids and how to plant, care for, and repot them.
