In Bloom

Q.
 Our team was scheduled to attend the second  workshop that was cancelled 4/29. We were not able to attend on 5/3.  Is there any information available to see what was presented at that workshop?

Also, can you let us know what the teams need to know about hydroponics?

A.
Matthaei Botanical Gardens put the workshop together to teach the students about plant adaptations (mostly rain forest and desert) and terrariums (focusing on the water cycle and soil profiles).

The students should know the difference between a passive and active hydroponic system and the components that make them up.  A basic understanding of how hydroponics works is also recommended.
