Join us at the Houseplant Clinic to diagnose and cure all your indoor plants’ ailments!

Are you noticing yellow, droopy leaves on your houseplant? Perhaps you’ve also noticed sticky leaves or an infestation of little flies or spiders. Don’t worry – TBG Horticulturalists are here to help! Join us for this in-person houseplant clinic where we will introduce common problems and their remedies and then we’ll help you identify and solve common problems that your tropical indoor plants may be experiencing!

Remember, prevention is key when it comes to keeping your houseplants healthy. Avoid overwatering, provide adequate light and ventilation, and regularly inspect your plants for any signs of pests or diseases. By identifying and addressing the problems early on, you can ensure that your tropical indoor plants will thrive.

Important: Your plant MUST be brought to TBG in a transparent plastic bags–this ‘portable greenhouse’ will keep your plant safe and keep your plant problems to your own plant. We cannot take the risk that your indoor plant problem becomes ours! Any plant not in a transparent bag will not be admitted. Please bring a maximum two problem plants per participant to ensure every-plant gets the attention it deserves.

Saturday, March 9, 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Members $25, Public $35 (plus applicable taxes and fees)
