Mark Muradian - Travel to Bolivia

Mark Muradian's grandfather started farming in the San Joaquin Valley in 1915. Mark still carries on his family's tradition. He has been cultivating cacti and succulents for nearly 20 years. He is a frequent and popular presenter to our club.

His most recent trip was to Bolivia, a natural habitat for many varieties of Rebutia, Lobivia, Notocactus, and Sulcorebutia.

We expect that he will bring his handmade pots for sale just in time for our members to be able to repot their prizewinning plants for the Show.
