In this program, participants will experience programming that will engage their senses with the beauty of plants and nostalgia of The Domes. The participant and their guest will learn about and explore the history of The Domes and its world-class plant collection as well as acquire new skills in plant husbandry and propagation. During the workshop, all attendees will choose a plant from the gift shop, repot their new plant, and take it home with instructions for care. Interpretive Educator, Pete Stobie, will teach houseplant skills related to watering and humidity, choosing soil, repotting, light requirements, and more.

Interactive workshop includes: Domes History and houseplant care. Participants will also take a tour of either the Tropical Dome OR the Show Dome.
