DRA and Urban Pothos Hosting Downtown Raleigh Plant Week

Wet your plants! … And other prickly plant pointers.

There you grow! May 8–13 marks DRA’s first-ever Downtown Raleigh Plant Week hosted by Urban Pothos—essentially fun plant parties around town all weeklong via your fave local plant spots (think Logan’s Garden Shop, Copperline Plant Co. and The ZEN Succulent, to name but a few). And don’t forget to use the hashtag #DTRPlantWeek to put your name in the pot to win a rare plant!

In honor of the occasion, we rounded up some professional plant pointers via our uberpopular Plant Pundit column—because let’s face it, some of us succ at keeping our potted children alive and thriving (it’s me, hi, I’m the problem).
