Get expert advice on all aspects of re-potting your orchids.

  • Determining whether and when your orchid needs to be repotted. This can vary by species and time of year.
  • Diagnosing potting problems, such as root loss and decomposition of potting mixes, over-potting and under-potting.
  • Choosing the right pot type and size
  • What's the best potting mix for your particular orchid
  • Can it be mounted?
  • How your environment and watering habits can affect these choices

    Bring up to three plants. Come with questions, get some answers. Then add some hands-on experience, with guidance from our volunteer members. Potting media and some pots will be available on site.

    All in all, a night of fun, and your orchids will thank you.

  • Be sure to head to the Lower Douglas Classroom for this event (adjacent to the greenhouse)
