Houseplants 101, Cheryl Gere

Indoors as outdoors, “right plant, right place” is the maxim to follow!  Cheryl will start by teaching you how to evaluate your own home as a houseplant haven, so you will understand what type of light, humidity, etc. you’re naturally providing.  She’ll show you how to choose the best plants for the conditions and care you’re able to provide, how to water and fertilize them, how to tell when to water and fertilize different plants, and generally how to care for your plants to keep them in tiptop condition.
