Time Lapse Photography of Cactus Flowers

Jaan Lepson and Peter Beiersdorfer will present a program on their work photographing cacti flowers with time lapse photography. This should be a unique and interesting presentation. We have all seen this technique used to illustrate slow moving animal life and plant cycles, but it will be a special treat for us to see it applied to our area of interest.

Plant Staging

Our president, Linda Delgado, and other regular show participants will be giving a demonstration of how to stage plants for show. This would be an excellent time for our members to bring their own plants for a makeover. Members are encouraged to participate.

Soil mixes and top dressing will be provided.

Members with last names starting with M through Z should bring a snack for the January meeting.
