Pitchers in Paradise: Cultivation of Nepenthes Pitcher Plants in Hawaii

February 26, 9:00am - 12:00pm
Mānoa Campus, Lyon Arboretum, 3860 Manoa Rd

Level up in your carnivorous plant knowledge! Join Lyon Arboretum’s Horticultural Manager, Tim Kroessig, for a deep dive into the captivating world of Nepenthes carnivorous pitcher plants! Tim is a member of the International Carnivorous Plant Society and has been growing various carnivorous plants in Hawai'i for the last 6 years. Tim's love and knowledge of Nepenthes have grown extensively over the past few years and he would love to share what he knows about cultivating these stunning and unique plants.

This workshop is intended for hobbyists that have at least some basic experience growing and maintaining carnivorous plants. Participants will learn and share about propagation techniques, feeding/fertilizing, hand-pollination, pest control strategies, and sustainably sourcing Nepenthes plants for collectors.
