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 included 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.

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 haven’t had great success with plants, but I always love them when I see friends who do. After Hilton’s class, I feel very confident and I understand better how to ask the right questions in order to give these lives what they need to thrive. I appreciate his explanations and how he simplified the process, giving me confidence that I can be successful.

Loved the class, learned about different propagation techniques as well as general plant knowledge. Hilton’s propagation wall is so beautiful that I want to create something similar in my home. He encouraged me to step up my plant game as well as love and treat them better. Absolutely wonderful experience!

Great experience. I gained helpful insights about the various types of indoor plant propagation techniques and care. Excited to kickstart my own plant propagation experiments / journey based on what I learned.

Nice! I am a lifelong gardener and have planted professionally but houseplants have been a particular challenge for me. Though I have learned a lot about propagation of house plants from my mother as a child and having done so with middling success in the recent past, this class gave me new info and new perspective that was very helpful. It was well worth it. Time well spent.

This was a fantastic workshop both for me as a more experienced plant parent and my roommate as a burgeoning plant parent. Mr. Carter's expertise, enthusiasm, and class-design skills shone in this context. Highly recommend!

Hilton's plant propagation class was super helpful! I have been wondering about plant propagation, but I just haven't felt like I had the knowledge or skills to do it -- even after reading countless blogs and books. After this class, I am ready to try my hand and discover what propagation can do for my own plants. Hilton's knowledge, passion, and enthusiasm for the subject shines through, and I came away from the course excited and with a ton of notes. He showed many examples, which as a visual learner helped me understand the process better. I appreciated the smaller class size (we had ten in mine, but a few more would be fine as well) and the ability to ask questions. Now I just need to stalk Hilton's website and score one of his beautiful live-edge propagation cradles before they sell out :-) Thank you, Hilton!
