An Engineer’s Approach to Houseplant Care

October 26 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

If you follow traditional houseplant advice, you’ll be left with disappointment because your plant is no longer “perfect”. The House Plant Journal approach breaks down the barriers to true, long-lasting enjoyment of houseplants – when you understand how plants work, you can gain a deeper appreciation for their character and more acceptance of how they’ll grow.  It’s a healthy dose of science and realistic expectations!

Speaker Darryl Cheng is the author of ‘The New Plant Parent’ and creator of House Plant Journal. Darryl’s passion for plants and engineering approach to plant care have turned him into the most trusted houseplant advisor! What was initially a hobby Tumblr page has turned into an Instagram account with over 500,000 followers, a go-to blog for anything plant related, his very own houseplant care book, and plant time-lapse videos that have gone viral around the world.

This presentation will be a  free Webinar.  There is no registration required.  A recording will be available for members only for 14 days after the presentation.
