World of Houseplants


Saturday, July 16 - Monday, September 5, 2022
SDBG "Member Hour" on Sundays, 9 - 10 am

San Diego Botanic Garden hosts its first houseplant showcase, World of Houseplants in the state-of-the-art, 8,000 square foot, glass-enclosed facility – the Dickinson Family Education Conservatory. In addition to the beautiful and immersive display, on select days, the show will feature sales of plants, potting materials, and other merchandise by vendors (more information to come).

The popularity of houseplants has surged recently, and for good reason. With the right conditions and care, the types of plants that can be grown indoors is vast. Houseplants have moved to center stage in many of our homes as an integral part of our décor and for their health benefits. Common and uncommon plants will be beautifully potted and arranged amidst the backdrop of incredible plant diversity within the Conservatory. Information on plant care and troubleshooting will allow guests to learn how to better care for their plants, and take this knowledge to their own plants at home.

Whether you’re a seasoned plant aficionado or you struggle to keep any plant alive, leave inspired by the beautiful staging and go home with a new addition to your collection during our plant sales. SDBG’s highly awarded Artist-in-Residence, René van Rems, AIFD, serves as Creative Director for the exhibition, bringing a new reimagined look, showcasing houseplants we know well and some that have traditionally only been grown by collectors.

Enroll in one of our many classes offered during the run of the exhibition and learn different techniques including potting, how to care for plants to keep them looking their best, and considerations for setting up your own plant collection.
