Greenhouse open house and repotting clinic

Posted on February 18, 2013

Come browse through Wheaton's state-of-the-art greenhouse for an open house and repotting clinic. Walk from the rainforest to the desert and see what each climate has to offer and the plants that live there. See orchids in bloom, cotton on a cotton bush, succulents galore, and primitive Cycads.

Date: Wednesday, March 13, 2013
Time: 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM
Location: Mars Center for Science and Technology, 4th floor

The greenhouses sport automatic shade curtains, fully electronic controls, growth chambers for environmentally monitored plant growth, and a rooftop weather sensor. Bring along a pot bound plant for expert assistance in repotting. Soil and non-decorative pots are available on site. Donations accepted to cover cost of materials.
