Cactus Courier
Newsletter of the Cactus and Succulent Society of San Jose

Favorite Plants and Why We Love Them

This month, we will be exchanging stories about how and why we became involved with succulent plants. Bring your favorite plant, a plant that has taxed your patience, or a plant about which you have a question. Our more experienced members will be regaling us with tales of the early days of succulent plant collecting. (Yes, they are that old.) Younger members can take advantage of this opportunity to learn why that plant they cherished so attentively turned brown and shriveled into a ghastly imitation of itself. This is your chance to enthrall your fellow enthusiasts with the details of how you raised that magnificent ribbon winner from a tiny seed or drugstore seedling.

Members with last names starting with A through F should bring a snack for the July meeting.
