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

I learned something. In all my planting I have been reporting 2” larger than the size of plant. What a mistake!! It is 2” larger that the root ball. This is such valuable information for me. Also, got my answer to how long to leave my grow lights on- about 16 hours.

Awesome class! I learned so much and took about 3 pages of notes as it was packed with such good information and tips.

Fantastic experience. This is my second one. Hilton is very engaging, knowledgeable and you can see his love for plants. I propagated a snake plant after his last class and that is thriving. Looking forward to doing more of them.

Such a fun workshop. I learned a ton and feel much more confident trying my hand at propagating my house plants. Hilton was a hoot, I loved how he kept the session interactive and put us all on the spot. It felt like an incredible value - he also covered general plant care and answered questions throughout. I highly recommend to any plant parents who want to "grow" their skills! 🪴✌🏻💕

I’ve been a longtime plant parent but I still learned so much about house plant care (water, light, pot size, etc.)! In addition to all the info about plant propagation. This is great for beginners and experienced plant owners. Highly recommend!

This was my first Airbnb Online Experience, and Hilton exceeded my expectations. I attended this experience with a group of co-workers, and it was fun messaging back-and-forth in the Zoom chat and hearing each other's questions. Hilton provides a lot of info, but it's all very clear and thoughtful. I took several notes on each propagation method, and I plan on putting these notes into practice soon. Thank you!
