Succulent plants include a spectacular variety of plants, some which live to be 200 years or more. Because they do well in a variety of light conditions, and also tolerate dry periods, they can be an ideal office plant. What’s more, some succulents, like the popular jade plant (Crassula portulacea), have been empirically shown to improve indoor air quality by removing toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs). There are, however, a few important tips to learn so that your succulents enjoy a long and healthy life. This GIMI-sponsored workshop, facilitated by McGill Plant Science doctoral student Christie Lovat will cover several topics related to the care and maintenance of succulent plants. Participants will receive either a Zamioculcas Zamifolia (ZZ-plant) or an Aloe flow (hybrid between Gasteria verrucosa and Aloe) both are easy to care for.
