Plant Propagation Experience with Hilton Carter

Friday, Feb. 26, 2021 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Event Type: 
Hilton Carter
Learn to propagate houseplants from designer and houseplant expert Hilton Carter!

This experience will start with Hilton talking about his background and his personal journey and passion for greenery. He will then lead the class through the proper steps for propagating indoor houseplants. This won't include outdoor gardening or edible plants. Through show and tell, Hilton will introduce you to various types of plants--from fiddle leaf figs to monsteras, succulents and cacti--and the best ways to cut them. He will then discuss what vessels work best to place them in, the water needed and how often to refresh or replace that water. Then he’ll talk about how to transition the cutting from water to soil once the roots have developed. 

Lastly, we will end with a Q&A to cover anything that might have been missed during the class.

Other things to note, since this will be in a show and tell format, it's probably best to view the experience on a computer or tablet.
