What you'll do

The thing that got me excited about bringing plants into my home when I first started was propagation. Being able to take a cutting from one plant, place it in water, watch as the root system develops and then pot it in soil to make a new plant is the best way to start your journey in greenery. Propagation teaches you so much about care, bonding, and patience when it comes to your plants.

This experience will start with me talking about my background and my personal journey and passion for greenery. I will then lead the class through the proper steps for propagating indoor houseplants. This won't include outdoor gardening or edible plants. Through show and tell, I will introduce you to various types of plants--from fiddle leaf figs to monsteras, succulents and cacti--and the best ways to cut them. We will then discuss what vessels work best to place them in, the water needed and how often to refresh or replace that water. Then we’ll talk about how to transition the cutting from water to soil once the roots have developed.

Lastly we will end with a Q&A to cover anything that might have been missed during the class.
Other things to note
Since this will be in a show and tell format, it's probably best to view the experience on a computer or tablet.

Over the past six years, I've been filling my home with plants and teaching myself how to blur the line of indoor and outdoor. In 2017, I started creating video content on how to care for plants. I share weekly care tips as the "Plant Doctor" for Apartment Therapy. In the same year, I started traveling around the US to host plant care workshops and still do so today (when we're not in quarantine). In 2018, I wrote my first book on plant care and plant styling titled Wild at Home and this spring I released my latest book, Wild Interiors. You can find me sharing daily content on my Instagram page: @hiltoncarter

What a perfect way to spend a Saturday morning. Hilton gives a great overview on plant propagation and inspired confidence in all of us. I'm excited to try some of these propagation techniques!

So great! I’m still a baby when it comes to being a plant caretaker and I learned so so so much! Can’t wait until the spring/summer to put it into practice! :) thank you!!!!

This class is perfect for plant lovers just starting out to the more advance who need a propagation refresher. Hilton is an awesome presenter and provides fantastic examples. I will be back for another class!

What a wonderful class! I learned so much and Hilton did a fabulous job. I would definitely recommend this class for any novice indoor plant parents or anyone looking to learn more from a thoughtful and engaging teacher.

Hilton is not only knowledgeable, but charismatic. I had so much fun learning from him! I want to take as many courses as possible with him.
