Green thumbs mean many things, including the fact that someone is an avid gardener, semisuccessful finger painter, or actually just a gecko in need of a lift to the next truck stop. Add some color to your opposable digits with today’s Groupon to Space Coast Bamboo in Cocoa. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of plants, flowers, and fruit.
- For $19, you get an intro bamboo-growing class (a $40 value).<p>
The florists at Space Coast Bamboo’s plant professionals help customers ornament their homes with flowers and exotic trees as well as helm classes on bamboo growing. The plant nursery brims with bright poinsettias ($8–10), various cacti ($10), and warm-colored camellias ($20). Or enliven backyard greenery with a sapling cherry tree ($30), which is eligible for delivery and installation ($10–$45+ depending on location).
Otherwise, during two- to three-hour bamboo-care classes, plant enthusiasts learn to nurture bamboo at the nursery’s bamboo grove. Instructors teach students to identify bamboo species and tell the difference between noninvasive clumping bamboo and invasive running bamboo, most easily discerned by its superior 40-meter dash time. At the conclusion of the lesson, students take home a small bamboo cutting to grow at home.
