Plant Care Workshops: Propagating plant babies

Recurring event see all

September 18 @ 5:00 pm 6:30 pm

Enjoy a tasty latte and propagate some plant babies!

Led by Greenhound volunteer and team members, we demonstrate how some widely used techniques which can be used to make plant ‘babies’. For plant propagations, we go through the elements of several techniques, such as stem cutting, division, and air layering, and discuss the merits for each approach for different species of plants. Attendees will be able to take home all the baby plants they propagated into small pots (or you wish, you can donate them and we’ll grow them and share them with the community).

In some of our other sessions, we teach how to make plant accessories to support the growth of tropical house plants, such as sphagnum moss poles and lighting apparatus.

Where will this activity be held?

Our community partner in Montreal’s downtown core, Leaves House Cafe, will be hosting our Latte Plant Care workshop series in August through November, 2021. During the workshop, all attendees will receive a free drink of choice from a variety of tasty plant-based drinks (lattes, matcha, iced lattes and teas, juices).

Additionally, Leaves House Cafe will offer15% off Leaves House Cafe’s plants and merchandise during the session.

Who’s helping us?

Many awesome volunteers! And hopefully you can come to make some plants with us too! This workshop series is made possible through the kind sponsorship support of Mountain Lake PBS. We are happy to continue our Latte Plant Care Workshops as part of our Education Series to the Greater Montreal area community with such great partners.

Which plants will be propagated?

Depending on the availability of plants from our supplier, we expect to have Hawaiian Golden pothos Epipremnum aureum, Monstera adansonii, Zamioculcas zamiifolia (ZZ), sansevieria, Tradescantia Nanouk, Scindapsus Exotica, and Ficus elastica Tineke.
