Learn the fundamentals of plant identification and houseplant care with an exploration of 50 beautiful houseplants, succulents, and cacti.

Through photo-story lectures, online fact pages, an e-book, flashcards, vocabulary games, mystery plants, and hundreds of beautiful images, learn the key identifying characteristics of these plants and how to best incorporate them into your home. Gain the skills needed to identify new plants that you encounter outside of the course.

This is an asynchronous, fully online, self-paced course, and you may participate anywhere that you have access to the internet. There are no required presentations or any set times that you will need to meet. There will be three scheduled live sessions, but they will be recorded and available to access at any time. You will have access to the course resources 24/7 for the entire six weeks of the class and for six months after the course ends. For an additional fee, you may choose to purchase an optional print copy of the online e-book that is included with the course.

This course counts as a three-week elective toward a Certificate in Ornamental Horticulture.
