Propagating Succulents 


Presented by: Christina Lind, Education Coordinator & Horticulturist 

Succulents make wonderful and low-maintenance house plants. They are also great for small spaces! If you own one already, they are one of the easiest plants to propagate and make more! Join us to learn a few basics of succulent propagation at January's Third Thursday, and you may get to take a starter succulent home with you! (Please register to ensure we have enough supplies)
