Presentation: Horticulture 201: The science behind a green thumb

Eric will share his cactus and succulent-growing techniques and the reasoning behind them. He will discuss the critical elements of horticultural practice: water, fertility, soils and media, light, and temperature from a practical perspective with the goal of increasing the understanding of how to grow desert plants well. The meeting will be informal, with plenty of time for questions and answers.
