    Students in the Home Horticulture class visited the rooftop greenhouses on Bessey and the Ada Hayden Herbarium last week. It was fun to learn more about sundews and corpse plant in the greenhouse. We also saw herbarium samples of Liatris and mosses. Who knew ISU had thousands of herbarium specimens of fungi and mosses! So many cool plants - so little time! #horticulture #botany #herbarium #greenhousetour #homehorticulture #sundew #corpseplant #liatris #moss @iastate_cals #pohlconservatory #adahayden

    Now is the time to pot up Amaryllis bulbs for blooms around the holidays. Unless you purchase a waxed bulb like this one which grows and blooms without soil and water. Cant wait to see if this works! #amaryllis #waxedbulb #horticulture #bulb #holidayplant #indoorgardening #ilovemyplantjob

    There are over 70 species in the genus Papaver. The remembrance poppy is one of the most widely recognized species as it commemorates those who have died in conflict. It is also called Flanders poppy after the poem Flanders Fields written by John McCrae during WWI. Never forget! #veteransday #remember #poppy #lestweforget #flanderspoppy #remembranceday
