NYBG: Orchids for Beginners

This program requires registration

Thursday, April 22, 2021

Please join us as we welcome Barbara Schmidt as she teaches us about Orchids. Orchids are one of the most common houseplants in America.

While this exotic flower is widely available, many do not know how to properly care for it. In this class, you'll explore how orchids grow in nature and learn the basic care instructions to keep them healthy and blooming in your home.
