Green Spaces in the Urban Landscape Series (Alocasia)!

Green Spaces in the Urban Landscape Series (Alocasia)!
Event on 2017-08-29 19:00:00
Class Description: Each week we will learn about a family of plants that do wonderfully in the home and also have the potential for creative design and beautiful aesthetics. The classes will start with more easy to care for plants, beginning with the Sansevieria or Snake plant, and leading up to the Alocasia. Each week, after learning about a particular plant family and its care needs and design potential, students are able to take home their own member of that plant family. Students will be provided with a Terracotta pot in class but are also able to bring their own pot as well to house their new plant. August 29- Alocasia: *What home is complete without a gorgeous “Elephant Ear”? The Alocasia is one of the most striking plants to have in any space, and with their arrow leaves and amazing color contrasts, they make an effortless statement. Native to both Asia and Australia, these plants have become more popular in indoor gardens, and pair well with many other varieties of plants. In our Alocasia class, we’ll learn some of the many varieties as well as design potential, safety & care needs, and propagation. We’ll also learn more extensively how to understand light needs and variations, and how they can be used to benefit this particular plant family.  Materials Fee: Alocasia Plant: ; Container (Optional): ; Soil . This fee will be collected by the instructor at the beginning of the session. Dates and Times: This is a five-week series on Tuesdays in August, from August 1 to August 29, from 7 to 9 pm. You can either register for each class independently or register for the whole series with a discount. About the Facilitator: Ingrid Stobbe is a Visual Artist based in Somerville, and recently founded LEAF Home Design.
