Mega Show and Tell

Here Ye! Here Ye! The Mega Show and Tell is here!

Bring your favorite, your least favorite, your most challenging, or your most successful cacti or succulent for the Mega Show.

This has been a popular event in the past. It gives us all a chance to learn something new from each other, get advice on that particularly difficult plant, or just show off.

Everyone who brings in plants for the Mega Show and Tell will get one raffle ticket per plant (up to a maximum of five) for a special raffle of surprise prizes.

(No plants with pests, please! We will do a program on another occasion dealing with pest problems.)

Special Notice:
For the next couple of meetings, our CSSSJ Logo T-shirts will be available to members for the special discount price of $12.00.
