Introduction to Tropical Plants

Duration: 3 hours

Certain plants that originate in tropical or sub-tropical climates can sometimes be grown successfully out of doors in a cooler climate - particularly if provided with some protection (e.g. under the canopy of a large tree or beside a wall to protect from wind and/or frost). With the right conditions (i.e. light, ventilation, temperature, humidity etc) any tropical plant can be grown in a greenhouse, or as an indoor plant, no matter where you live. In this course, you'll learn about the nature and scope of tropical plants. Includes material on climactic zones.
