Cultivating Orchids in Your Home

November 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

There is no more intriguing, exotic, or beautiful family of plants than orchids.  In the plant world, their diversity and range are matched only by the sunflower family.  Despite the fact that most orchids grow in tropical climates, many gorgeous specimens can be successfully grown in San Antonio.  In this workshop, Luis Valdez, former president of the Alamo Orchid Society, will discuss the natural history of the orchid plant, the environments in which they grow, and provide detailed instruction on how you can successfully propagate this plant at home.  He will also have specimens on hand to examine and will lead a tour through the orchid room at the Lucille Halsell Conservatory.

Instructor:  Luis Valdez, former president, vice president and board member of the Alamo Orchid Society

Fee:  $20 ($18, Garden members)
