What’s Wrong With My Houseplant?

Just like outdoor gardening, growing houseplants doesn’t always go as planned. Join us online and learn the factors that make for happy houseplants, including light, water, and soil… and how to provide them. We’ll discuss common houseplant pests and diseases, as well as how to treat them.

This program is led by Bonnie Power, a Massachusetts Master Gardener since 2016 and a serious outdoor/indoor gardener most of her life. Curious and research-oriented by nature, she has many horticultural interests and areas of expertise. Bonnie holds both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in zoology, which informs her perspective on the management of garden insects. She is also an administrator for a “sick houseplant” group on Facebook, and she spent the past year as manager of the MMGA Soil pH Testing team. Bonnie volunteers at Garden in the Woods, a Native Plant Trust botanical garden in Framingham, where she is a guide. She learned to grow vegetables as a child from her father, and flowers and houseplants from her mother. At home in Marlborough, Bonnie grows a variety of vegetables and ornamentals (with a bias for natives).
