Caring for air plants

A noon-hour workshop Tuesday July 12th, Downtown campus

Air plants

Air plants, or Tillandsia are fascinating indoor plants. There are more than 700 species of these popular epiphytes. Like orchids, they normally grow without soil and are quite easy to grow and maintain. This GIMI-sponsored workshop, facilitated by McGill Plant Science doctoral student Christie Lovat will cover the care and maintenance of a variety air plants. Participants will come away with two air plants and will create their very own small terrarium to take home. All materials will be provided.
