About the Event

In the Hoya Edition of Plant Practice, we are going to play in the dirt and get to know these popular plants. Registration includes 2 - 4" pots of Hoyas, and samples of 5 different potting mediums. Choose your own Hoyas from 6 - 8 cultivars. 

One of your plants is to take home (instant success) and the other is to take apart. (also to take home).  Learn about why the stems and roots look the way they do, why they're planted the way they are, and how to check for/identify pests and diseases.  Then we'll take a look at the substrates the Hoyas were planted in by the grower, and play with the different substrate types used for growing and propogation. Samples for attendees include; Pumice, Chunky Perlite, Horticultural Charcoal, Leca, and Sphagnum Moss. Propogation techniques will also be discussed and we'll "practice". Hands-on, super-fun time.
