Life Without Roots

  • This event has passed.

How do plants with no roots survive? How do they obtain the water and mineral nutrients that are essential requirements for plant growth? Learn about the fascinating adaptations that plants without true roots or chlorophyll have developed in order to meet the basic necessities of life, even in harsh environmental conditions. A garden tour in search of parasitic plants, lichens, and other unique species is included, as is a discussion of the important roles they play in our local ecosystems.
