Air Plants 101 with Guest Speaker, Todd Portner

  • Mar-Lu View 3810 Lander Road Jefferson, MD, 21755 United States (map)

At 44 years old, Todd had killed every single plant that he ever had. Not because he didn’t try to care for them- he just didn’t have a green thumb. For years he had admired a friend’s plant she had hanging in her kitchen window; an ‘Air Plant’ she called it. He was fascinated with how delicate and simple it was: no roots, no water, no dirt. He began researching them, and eventually bought his first Air Plant. That was in March of 2018- and since then- he has expanded his collection to over 30 plants in 17 different varieties. Some of them have “pups” too! Todd is a lover of mid-century furniture and decor, so air plants are perfect for his home, where the risk of plant damage is unacceptable. He can display them without risk of drips, water marks, or spills. If you love air plants, want to learn how to better care for them, or are looking to expand your collection- please join us Saturday, November 10th at 1:00pm for Todd’s presentation. We will have a wide variety of air plants and accessories available for purchase.
