Do you adore your house plants as if they were your own children? Have you taken to growing plants on nearly every windowsill in your home? Join us as we take a deep dive into learning more about the plants we grow inside our homes! Learn about their wild history before they took a more “domestic” lifestyle, understand what makes some of them toxic, what they would look like if they flowered, and other interesting information they would tell you if only they could talk.
Tips for happy, healthy plants will be shared, and there will be FREE house plants for you to take home! Bring your date for this special Valentine’s Day edition of the East Bay Science Cafe!
