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

This class was awesome! I knew of Hilton from Instagram and was so excited to see he was hosting a class! He gave us so much awesome information. Definitely bring a pen and paper because you are going to want to take notes. I learned so much and I can't wait to start propagating my plants!

As someone who is well on her way to also becoming a plant hoarder, I highly recommend this class! I have propagated plants before, but this class was great and I learned some stuff I didn't know before. It's set up nicely so whether you are a plant killer or a more experienced plant parent you will understand Hilton's explanations of propagating. I can't wait to use the knowledge I learned to bring more plants into my life!

A gifted and engaged instructor, HC makes the time fly! Make sure you take notes, because he is super thorough and gives so much valuable information in a short period of time. Highly recommend.

I used to consider myself the Plant Dr. but Hilton has motivated me to more fully educate myself on each individual houseplant's needs. If you're taking this class just know there is no judgment, like Hilton says, "there's no such thing as a brown thumb!" I left feeling very empowered.

Such a fun way to spend a rainy Saturday morning! Hilton is a fun personality and breaks down all of the various methods to propagate plants in an easy-to-understand way. Lots of opportunities to ask questions. I took a ton of notes and can't wait to get started! Would definitely recommend this class.

As a recovering plant killer, this was a great way to learn some of the mistakes I have been making in caring for and propagating my plants. The live interactive aspect allows you to ask questions and see examples, which is so much better than trying to figure it out on google.
