Colin Evans on Exotic House Plants

April 9, 2018

 

  After an evening with Colin Evans members will have no excuse for not keeping their orchids and other house plants growing in prime condition.  As Colin explained, success with house plants is all about recreating the natural conditions in which they thrive.  In the case of orchids this amounts to maintaining them in a humid atmosphere through regular misting with water and ensuring their roots have access to light. This can be achieved by placing them in a translucent container, such as a decorative glass vase, with some moss applied to the surface to help maintain humid conditions around them.

A natural and entertaining speaker Colin has a wealth of knowledge from his varied career in horticulture. He has lectured in horticultural science and is now a consultant and broadcasts with BBC Radio Berkshire and Oxford.  His ability to inform and entertain with a splash of humour ensured that members had a most enjoyable evening.
